The interim Fiji Government announced on 22 April 2009 that it has signed a Confidential Memorandum of Understanding with Hong Kong. This included the initialling of an Air Services Agreement (ASA).

Air Pacific
(FJ), part owned by oneworld alliance member Qantas, is now planning to commence air services between Nadi and Hong Kong in December 2009. The announcement imples that Air Pacific will look to enter into a commercial arrangements with Cathay Pacific, also a member of oneworld.

Fijilive reported on 2 April 2009 that Air Pacific is exploring the possibility of codesharing on Noumea-based Aircalin after recently ceasing operating to Japan. This would require amending the Fiji-Japan ASA to allow for third-country code share and an intermediate point in Noumea.
