Airlines Flying to Solomon Islands


Flying into Honiara


What did TikiTouring think of flights with Solomon Airlines?

The main air carrier into the Solomon Islands is, as you would expect, Solomon Airlines.

They offer four flights a week from Brisbane to the Solomons capital Honiara, and four return flights back to Brisbane.

Flying time between the Queensland state capital and Honiara is just under three hours.

Solomon Airlines is about to start a direct Sydney-Honiara service from June 2, 2015.

Scheduled to operate ex-Honiara on Mondays and ex-Sydney on Tuesdays, the airline will utilise its Airbus A320 on the new route which has been specifically timed to offer seamless flight linkage between several Australian cities and also international connections.

These include Canberra, Melbourne and Perth and internationally, for passengers connecting to and from New Zealand, the US, Asia, the Middle East, the UK and Europe.

The new Sydney flight schedule will operate as follows:

Monday -
Flight IE 710 Honiara-Sydney Departing Honiara 1515 Arriving Sydney 1830

Flight IE 711 Sydney-Honiara Departing Sydney 0930 Arriving Honiara 1445
