Bula Adelaide! Fiji Airways to resume direct ADL-NAN flights from July

After a three-year hiatus, Fiji Airways will resume direct services to Adelaide from Nadi on Monday, July 4 2022.

After a three-year hiatus, Fiji Airways will resume direct services to Adelaide from Nadi on Monday, July 4 2022.

The news was announced at the opening ceremony of the Fijian Tourism Expo on Wednesday, 11 May, by Andre Viljoen, Managing Director and CEO of Fiji Airways.

This will mark the fourth Australian leg for the airline after Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. Currently, Fiji Airways operates two flights daily out of Sydney and daily flights out of Melbourne and Brisbane. 

Fiji Airways said diversifying the Australian market has been a goal of Fiji Airways since Fiji borders opened on 1 December 2021.

“We’re delighted to re-launch our fourth Australian route, which will allow us once again to bring our unique Fijian hospitality to South Australia, as well as offer local residents the opportunity to use Fiji as a gateway to other international destinations,” said Andre Viljoen, Managing Director and CEO of Fiji Airways.

“The increase in our aircraft fleet allows us to cater to the demand out of Adelaide”.

The vast majority of tourists to Fiji arrive from Australian airports, so the resumption of this service will be good news for travellers and the sizable Fijian community living in South Australia.

“We know there is significant pent-up demand for South Australians wanting to head overseas again, and Fiji Airways has recognised the strength of our market,” said Adelaide Airport Managing Director Brenton Cox.

“Fiji has always been a hugely popular destination with South Australian travellers and it’s great to see the reintroduction of routes as the COVID recovery continues.”

Flights are now available to book with return economy airfares starting from AUD$649 per person and return business class airfares from AUD$2,299 per person.
