No commission - Swift

Publish date/time: 18/07/2013 [13:02]

Commission arrangements are never in place between airline companies and Airbus or Boeing relating to aircraft purchases or financing.

Acting Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Fiji Airways Aubrey Swift has made this clear after some politicians asked for clarification on whether any commission was received by anyone during the purchase of the three new A330s.

A United Front statement signed by Mick Beddoes, Laisenia Qarase, Mahendra Chaudhry, Raman Pratap Singh and Attar Singh said that they understand that commissions are paid in transactions for the purchase of a new aircraft. 

They asked Fiji Airways to clarify whether any commission was paid out to anyone.

No evidence or information has been provided by the United Front to prove this.

As stated by Aubrey Swift, neither Fiji Airways nor Airbus have any commission arrangements during the sale and purchase of planes.
