Trip over was quiet with not a lot of passengers so able to spread out. Coming back, full plane but space adequate. Good cabin crew and uneventful flight.

Travelling to the Marovo lagoon, and in particular Evis Resort, means either the weekend ferry, which can be a crowded and uncomfortable 15 hour journey, or a quick hour's hop over the blue seas of the Solomon Islands. Both ferry and plane will take you to Seghe. I occasionally use the air service to Seghe in preference to the ferry...

I have just taken my first flight with this small airline, the service was excellent in all the right places.. Meals were quite tasty, seats were comfy and I even found a little more leg room on this aircraft. The staff are friendly and wiling to help at all times, drinks and nibbles were served in a very timely manner....

Solomon Airways has been experiencing problems with their Airbus 820 which caused delays to some services in December 2017 and January 2018. In all instances, Solomon Airways acted responsibly to ensure passengers were transported and supported where necessary with Accommodation, etc. Flight and Ground staff were always helpful. In flight meals are always good. I will keep flying with Solomon...

Choosing to fly to the western province of the Solomon Islands requires flexibility and faith. You will get there ..... eventually. Always choose Solomon Air to maximise the likelihood of connections. Flying on the same day - domestic and international - also increases the chances of getting on the domestic plane and it arriving/leaving within an hour of scheduled times....

Solomon Airlines hasn’t any frills, but the staff are very friendly and polite. The inflight meal was very delicious. There was no inflight entertainment. Just take a good book or listen to music. The flight is only 3 hours from a Brisbane to Honiara. Flies by.

The staff are exceptional - nothing is too much trouble. The aircraft is fairly basic with BYO entainment but for a 2.5 hr flight you don't need too much. Also you are earning Qantas Points.
