After a three year hiatus, Fiji Airways has announced it’s bringing back direct flights with Adelaide.

The pandemic has had a devastating effect on the travel industry. But the recovery is slowly happening, leading to an exciting announcement from Managing Director and CEO of Fiji Airways Andre Viljoen.

From the 4th of July, two flights a week will connect Adelaide directly to Nadi, Fiji.

“We’re delighted to re-launch our fourth Australian route, which will allow us once again to bring our unique Fiijian hospitality to South Australia, as well as offer local residents the opportunity to use Fiji as a gateway to other international destinations.”

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

Since the border opened back up to Fiji in December of last year, Fiji Airways has been determined to diversify the Australian market.

With the majority of tourists to Fiji travelling from Australia, this new service is a big win for South Australians and the tourism industry in Fiji.

“We know there is a 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.”

The airline already provides two direct flights a week from Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
