Everything you need to know about Fiji Airways

Fiji Airways is the kind of airline you look forward to flying almost as much as you look forward to arriving at the destination it’s taking you to.

As the country’s international airline, Fiji Airways offer world-class hospitality and service from the moment you jump on board.

Often touted as the world’s friendliest people, travellers are welcomed by the staff with a beaming smile – suffice to say, you travel as part of the Fiji Airways family, not just a tourist.

Warming hospitality aside, the planes themselves are de-luxe.

Fiji Airways has a modern fleet of Boeing 737 and Airbus A330-200 aircraft. Both aircraft offer business and economy class options, and both are modern and comfy.

On all international services, passengers receive a complimentary meal, drinks, in-flight entertainment options, up to 23kg of checked baggage in Economy and up to 40kg in Business class.

One would be forgiven for thinking this all sounds too good to be true, or at least too far away to be experienced any time soon.

But, oh, how wrong you are.

Fiji is incredibly easy to get to, thanks to direct flights to Nadi which depart from Sydney twice daily, from Brisbane daily, from Melbourne five to six times weekly and twice weekly from Adelaide.

Plus connect from Perth, Darwin, Cairns, Rockhampton, Adelaide, Canberra and Hobart on codeshare flights with partner airline Qantas, via Brisbane or Sydney.

So, you’re relaxed, you’re comfortable, you’re mere hours away from your well-deserved tropical holiday – but are you hungry?

Well, good news.

Wonderful fresh ingredients and vibrant flavours define Fijian food and Fiji Airways will give you a taste of this delicious South Pacific cuisine.

Meals are offered with a full range of beverages on long-haul flights.

As well as this, lighter snacks are offered on all short-haul journeys with drinks available for purchase.

Is looking out at the bright aqua sea boring you?

Not to worry.

A complimentary in-flight entertainment program is offered on all flights, through personal screens or throughout the main cabin on overhead screens.

All business class passengers and economy passengers on selected long-haul flights can enjoy Fiji Time, a new inflight entertainment program that offers on-demand movies, TV and radio.

“Ok, ok but tell us about the cabins!”, we hear you scream.

Well, let’s break it down for you.

Economy class

Economy class on Fiji Airways offers you your first taste of one of the world’s most welcoming cultures.

Sit back and enjoy stylish cabin decor, complimentary inflight entertainment and the services of the friendly cabin crew.

Our economy class passengers receive one piece of 7kg carry-on and 23kg check-in luggage, with in-flight entertainment, a hot meal and beverages.

Business class

This deluxe service begins before you board the plane, with express airport lanes and access to lounge facilities at selected airports.

A three-course fine dining menu, a range of beverages and on-demand in-flight entertainment ensure that passengers have a relaxed and comfortable flight.

Business class passengers receive two pieces of 7kg carry-on and 30kg priority tagged check-in luggage.

In addition to priority check-in and boarding, business class passengers also get access to the business class lounge at Nadi International Airport plus affiliate Qantas lounges in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. And if you ask us, the lounge is by far the best bit of the airport.

Fiji Airways onboard service includes gate to gate entertainment on your personal in-flight screen, noise-cancelling headsets, a welcome Fiji rum cocktail with canapes, followed by a three-course meal, accompanied with world-renowned wines and spirits.

We know by now you’re probably mid-way through booking your Fiji Airways ticket for this weekend, but here’s just one final thing to remember: the Tabua Club.

For frequent travellers to and from Fiji, membership to Fiji Airways Tabua Club offers benefits such as priority check-in, priority flight reservations and extra baggage allowance.

The Club will also earn points towards upgrade credits, access to partner lounges in Australia and the newly opened Fiji Airways Premier Lounge at Nadi International Airport.

Okay, you’re probably choosing your seats and meals on board for your weekend trip at this point, so if there’s anything else you need to know, click here.

Otherwise, happy flying!
