Getting to Labasa via Savusavu

from w
It's a bit rough on passengers trying to get to Labasa from Suva or Nadi these days - you can fly as far as Savusavu and then you have to go some other way to Labasa - hire your own van or car!  Not good. Fiji Sun ought to have some arrangement.
from Fiji Times today:

PACIFIC Sun passengers opting to fly to Savusavu during the closure of the Labasa airport will have to make their own transport arrangements for Labasa.
Pacific Sun spokesman Shane Hussein said passengers would be required to arrange their own transport from Savusavu to Labasa.
"Pacific Sun will increase frequency into Savusavu while the Labasa Airport is closed for runway maintenance work," Mr Hussein said. "Customers holding tickets for flights to Labasa will be offered the choice to be flown to Savusavu during this period," he said.
The Labasa Airport will undergo maintenance work from August 31 to September 12.
Airports Fiji Limited will spend about $1.8million on the maintenance work to be carried out on the runway. AFL chief executive Lawrence Liew said Labasa was a key airport in the north and the State had allocated funds for the upgrading work.
