Bula! Adelaide Airport & State Government welcome Fiji Airways direct flights
Adelaide Airport and the State Government have welcomed the announcement this morning that Fiji Airways will fly direct between Adelaide and Nadi from June 2017.
The new service will operate twice a week during peak season from 30 June 2017. It will utilise a Boeing 737 offering economy and business class seating options.
Services from Nadi on FJ961 will depart at 4.30pm and arrive in Adelaide at 8.30pm on Monday and Friday.
Services from Adelaide on FJ960 will depart at 10.00pm on Monday and Friday and arrive in Nadi at 5.35am the following morning (all times local).
Flights are now on sale with return economy airfares starting from $799. Tickets can be purchased through the Fiji Airways website, www.fijiairways.com, or by calling the Fiji Airways Global Reservations Centre.
Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Mark Young, said:
“Fiji has always been a hugely popular destination with South Australian travellers, and Fiji Airways’ new link will make it even more attractive.
“This creates another one-stop connection with the US West Coast with the added bonus of being able to stopover in beautiful Fiji.
“South Australia’s strong Fijian community will also benefit from a direct link with Nadi bringing them closer to their family and friends.
“Fiji Airways is an airline partner of Qantas, which means Qantas Frequent Flyers can earn and use points on this service.”
South Australian Tourism Minister Leon Bignell, said:
“Today’s announcement is more good news for the State’s booming $6 billion visitor economy as airlines from around the world pick Adelaide as a global destination.
“In the past 12 months more than 50,000 US visitors came to SA and Fiji Airways will provide even more options for visitors from the United States to travel to South Australia.”
