Air Pacific Managing Director and Chief Executive, David Pflieger will leave the airline when he completes his three-year contract in May.
The airline’s Chairman, Nalin Patel announced Pflieger’s decision to leave and return to the United States at the end of his term.
In a statement Patel said the Board would immediately begin the recruitment process for the next managing director and CEO.
Patel said Pflieger skillfully guided the airline through one of the most remarkable turnarounds in the airline industry.
He said Air Pacific is now profitable and extremely well-positioned for future growth and success.
The airline will be completely re-branded and restored to its 1960’s name of Fiji Airways as well as take delivery of three A330s this year.
