Bula! Adelaide Airport welcomes Fiji Airways’ first flight
Friday 30 June, 2017
Adelaide Airport today welcomes Fiji Airways’ first flight between Adelaide and Nadi – arriving at 8.30pm and departing at 10.00pm this evening.
The new service will operate twice a week during peak season, utilising 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, Monday and Friday.
Services from Adelaide on FJ960 will depart at 10.00pm, Monday and Friday, and arrive in Nadi at 5.35am the following morning (all times local).
Adelaide Airport Managing Director, Mark Young, said there had been strong early interest in the new destination, with South Australians welcoming the direct flights rather than having to travel via the eastern states.
“Fiji has always been a hugely popular destination with South Australian travellers, and Fiji Airways’ new link now makes it even more attractive,” Mr Young said.
“This also creates another one-stop connection with the US West Coast with the added bonus of being able to stopover in beautiful Fiji.
“We also understand the new services have been embraced by South Australia’s strong Fijian community, who are excited about the 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.”
Tickets can be purchased through the Fiji Airways website, www.fijiairways.com, or by calling the Fiji Airways Global Reservations Centre.
