Fiji Link, Fiji Airways’ domestic subsidiary will now require all passengers to show the careFiji app on their personal devices at check-in as part of their Travel Ready programme.
The careFiji app registration is now required for domestic passengers to assist contact tracing efforts by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.
Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO said: “Similar to COVID-safety efforts by the Government and the private sector, Fiji Link will now require that customers show the careFiji app on their devices at check-in for all domestic flights. For a family or group travelling and checking in together, one device with the CareFiji app is adequate. Fiji Link staff will update a manual contact tracing form with details of customers without smartphones or unaccompanied minors.”
Viljoen added: “The careFiji app is very much a part of our ‘new normal’ in a COVID-world. Both Fiji Airways and Fiji Link will continue to play a leading role in its rollout, in close consultation with Fijian authorities and as part of our Travel Ready programme.”
