All domestic flights to Vanua Levu and maritime islands will cease from 6pm tomorrow.

The Department of Civil Aviation has sent an alert to all local airline operators, advising them on this measure.

Medical evacuation flights and cargo flights will only be permitted between Viti Levu and outer islands.

Flights between Nadi and Suva will be permitted, according to the advisory.

The advisory states “these are unprecedented times and as such we request you full cooperation.”

Passenger ferry services between the two main islands and maritime areas stopped yesterday.
