Floating in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean, the 333 green islands that form Fiji are home to some of the happiest people on Earth, including those who visit on vacation. It’s hard not to be happy in Fiji, surrounded by pristine waters, lush flora and vibrant culture.
Whether you plan to explore the marine Eden in the crystal-clear waters, lounge on the white powder sand beaches, taste the sweetest fruits, rejuvenate in some of Fiji’s best spas, practice your golf swing or explore the rich tapestry of history and cultures, an incredible Fijian journey awaits every visitor.
And that journey begins as soon as the first smiling face welcomes you on board a Fiji Airways flight with a genuine “Bula,” meaning wishes for continued good health.
Fiji Airways is more than an airline; it’s an enabler for travelers to reach remote places on Earth in true style and ultimate comfort.
Fiji Airways’ story began over 60 years ago with domestic routes on a seven-seater Dragon Rapide plane, flying travelers across Fiji island.
Since then, its brand story has grown to offer routes connecting the rest of the world to Fiji and its beautiful shores are now accessible no matter where you are in the world.
Fiji has made it easy for travelers too. A four-month visa is automatically granted on arrival for visitors from almost every country. All you need is a valid passport with at least six months validity and an outbound ticket.
Fiji Airways brings 64 percent of all international travelers to the islands from 23 destinations in 13 countries.
These include Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, USA and a recently launched direct route between Nadi and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport in Japan.
The new nine-hour flight is operated three times a week on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The service offers over 80,000 seats a year on the ultra-modern Airbus A330-200/-300 planes.
The new flight route bolsters the relationship between Fijians and Japanese people, two nations brimming with unique culture.
But this is just the start of your journey
Fiji Airways’ international routes open up the whole of the Asia Pacific and the west coast of the US to travelers.
While Fiji may seem far from everywhere, it only takes three hours to reach New Zealand on a Fiji Airways direct flight and Australia is just an hour more. Fiji could be a long weekend destination for those in neighboring countries, but its lure will make you stay for longer.
Additionally, Fiji Airways also has excellent relationships with fellow airlines, giving it a brilliant bank of codeshare partnerships. These partnerships let you book onward flights through Fiji Airlines, meaning you can earn points and be rewarded for brand loyalty.
The codeshare routes let travelers fly to Central Asia, Europe, and across the US. A full route map can be found here.
The airline has also embarked on becoming the first oneworld connect partner enabling customers to enjoy more services and benefits across an even more extensive global network.
What can Fiji Airways customers expect?
The airline’s current fleet consists of 11 aircrafts, including six of the spacious yet sleek Airbus A330 planes.
The airline also has five of Boeing’s newest 737 MAX 8 on order which should be in service by the end of the year.
The fleet’s A330 aircraft have a wide range of in-flight entertainment, from the latest Hollywood and Bollywood movies to over 500 albums, audiobooks, and games. The narrow body Boeing 737 planes have complimentary overhead screens playing movies and TV series.
A full offering of the in-flight entertainment on offer can be found on Fiji Airways’ website.
And while comfort, style, entertainment and the warmest “Bula” welcome will be found in every cabin on every flight, Fiji Airways does offer two classes.
The business class experience starts in the terminal with complimentary increased baggage allowance, express airport lanes, and access to lounge facilities. After takeoff, flyers can indulge in a three-course fine dining supper accompanied by a range of wines, liqueurs, and cheeses.
Economy class welcomes flyers with a bright cabin atmosphere and some excellent entertainment and service as in business class.
While the fine selection of cheese may be exclusive to those up front, economy ticket holders can dine on South Pacific-inspired cuisine including fish dishes, fruity salsas, and a full range of complimentary beverages.
