Weather is SCT010 which is about at the minima for the RNAV29 so it might be weather potentially

Flight doesn't show on their website so I suspect it's a freighter. I'm advised that they are not carrying pax at the moment. I'm guessing that it was scheduled Nadi-Port Vila-Honiara and couldn't get into Vila so is overflying to Honiara.

Correct. Weekly freight flight, Nadi-Vila-Honiara-Vila-Nadi.

Diverted to AGGH, after they couldn't get into NVVV due weather. Then went AGGH-NVVV-NFFN

Second time lucky into Vila.
