For the first time in three years, Fiji Airways will soon resume direct flights from Nadia to Adelaide, which are operated twice a week.
The international airline said on Wednesday that the routes would return on July 4.
Fiji Airways currently operates two daily flights from Sydney and once a day from Melbourne and Brisbane.
Managing Director and CEO of Fiji Airways Andre Viljoen said that most of the tourists who visited Fiji came from Australia, so the service will be good news for local travelers as well as the Fijian community.
Mr Viljoen said the increase in the fleet had met demand from Adelaide.
“We are excited to re-establish our fourth Australian route, which will allow us to once again bring our unique Fijian hospitality to South Australia, as well as offer locals the opportunity to use Fiji as a gateway to other international destinations,” he said. .
Adelaide Airport chief Brenton Cox said Fiji has always been a popular destination among travelers from South Australia.
“We know that there is a significant delayed demand for South Australians who want to go abroad again, and Fiji Airways has recognized the strength of our market,” he said.
Currently, only fully vaccinated people are allowed to enter Fiji, and they will need to show evidence of vaccination, insurance and a pre-booked rapid test for the antigen, which must be passed within 72 hours of arrival.
Tickets with return flights costing at least $ 649 per person for economy tickets or $ 2,299 per person in business class are currently available.
