Today marks the much-anticipated launch of Fiji Airways’ new non-stop services between Adelaide and Nadi.

The new route marks the fourth direct service from Australia and the first new route in this market in 10 years, with the full service airline already flying nonstop from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

“This is an exciting day for Fiji Airways as it marks our expansion and growth in our most significant market, after Fiji,” said Andre Viljoen, CEO and MD of Fiji Airways.

“We are thrilled to now have a connection with South Australia, and along with getting more Fijians to experience that wonderful part of Australia – and having easier accessibility to friends and family there – we are looking forward to welcoming more South Australians to our beautiful home.”

Available year round, the new direct service will run twice weekly on Fridays and Mondays, making the timings also convenient for a long weekend away.

Passengers on the inaugural flight (FJ961) from Fiji will arrive at Adelaide Airport tonight at 8:30pm, with the first flight to Fiji (FJ960) departing at 10:00pm.

Fiji Airways currently flies twice daily from Sydney, daily from Brisbane and five times a week from Melbourne.
