Visiting one of Australias fave travel destinations just became much easier, with Qantas launching direct flights from Sydney to Fiji.

From 31 March 2019, the direct service will operate four times per week to Nadi, the country’s main gateway, with a Boeing 737 aircraft, offering a checked baggage allowance, inflight entertainment and food and drinks all included as part of the fare, and the option to fly or upgrade to Business class.

The flights add to Jetstar’s direct services which also operate four times per week and will see the Qantas Group offer customers more than 75,000 seats on the route annually and the choice to fly to the popular holiday destination six days a week.

Qantas International CEO Alison Webster said the addition of Fiji to the Qantas network provided more choice for the growing number of Australians wanting to holiday on the islands.

“Fiji continues to be an incredibly popular holiday destination for Australian families, couples and adventure and luxury travellers, with a number of new luxury properties having opened up on the islands in recent years,” said Webster.

“We have built flexibility into our network to respond to growing demand where we see it. In this case, it’s returning to Fiji after almost 20 years, a short four-hour hop from Sydney, helping extend the summer for Australians year-round.

“The combination of Qantas and Jetstar also means we can provide more options to a destination which caters to different budgets and tastes, with good interstate connections for passengers travelling from other parts of Australia.”

Qantas will also today add its code to Jetstar’s flights between Sydney and Nadi, for travel from 1 February 2019.  Qantas customers travelling on the Jetstar codeshare service will enjoy additional benefits, including the opportunity for Qantas Frequent Flyers to earn points and status credits and a complimentary meal.

Qantas will also continue to codeshare on Fiji Airways’ services to Nadi. With Fiji Airways now integrated as a oneworld connect partner, Qantas customers will benefit from more flight options and the opportunity to earn and redeem Qantas Points and Status Credits on Fiji Airways’ services between the two countries. Eligible Qantas Frequent Flyers will also have access to priority check-in desks, priority boarding and lounge access when flying on Qantas codeshare flights operated by Fiji Airways.

Customers can book Qantas’ new Fiji service from today at qantas.com or through travel agents. To celebrate the launch, Qantas is offering sale fares starting from $269 one-way, available 21 to 23 January 2019, for travel from 31 March 2019.

One response to “Qantas launches direct flights from Sydney to Fiji”

  1. Qantas tired old 737 vs newish Fiji Airways A330 ? The latter would win out everytime plus in DEC you can get the A330 at 6.15am(FJ914 x 5 weekly-other days brand new 737max, which means you can land in Fiji at 12.15pm, so whole day is not lost.
