You'll have a great time Andre :lol: My wife and I go to the Bilikiki twice a year at least. You can go there either through Brisbane or Fiji. I think both destinations are reached through LA. If you come the europe way, i can recommend using Singapore Airlines from Singapore directly to Brisbane. From Brisbane you take Solomon Airlines.

Thanks Cor for all the useful information in your review.

The logical way for me coming from BC is Vancouver - Hawai- Fiji - Solomons. The problem with that is that you are restricted to 20kg check in and 7 kg carry on luggage from Fiji to Honiara. Coming the Brisbane route I was told that you can get a 40kg divers allowance to Honiara.

Have you or anyone else done the Fiji - Honiara flight? I am curious about their enforcement of those weights.

Thanks, Andre

It's true that you have a 40kg limit between Brisbane and Honiara. It's not as much a diver's allowance, as a special deal between Bilikiki and Solomon Airlines.

Ive done the Fiji/Honiara flight also (it stops in Vanuatu btw) and sofar my experience has been that the weight limits are enforced, but only towards the Solomons. Ive never had to pay leaving the Solomons. But overweight rules are not exact science, so just prepare to pay and feel lucky if you dont have to :)

Say hi to Monty and Michelle for me (the managers) :rolleyes:
