As Fiji welcomed its first flight of international visitors in 20 months with borders reopening today, Fiji Airways has debuted a launch of new products and benefits to enhance the customer experience.
Fiji Airways has increased baggage allowance from 23kg to 30kg for economy class passengers on all international flights.
For selected long-haul and medium-haul flights, economy class passengers will be able to purchase the My Island sleeper product to stretch out over an entire row. The new My Island option includes a business class size pillow, mattress topper, additional blanket and an extension seat belt.
Travellers with Fiji Airways will also get free access to the digital reading platform PressReader, with 7,000+ international newspapers and magazines available to download on their own device.
Onboard dining has also been given a re-up with the appointment of Fijian-New Zealand chef Richard Cross to oversee all catering functions across the airline.
Along with it, Fiji Airways has introduced a selected suite of highly-rated wines. The new onboard wine range comes from renowned wine regions of Australia, New Zealand, France and America.
For younger passengers, Fiji Airways have launched Our Ocean, Our Life, a complimentary in-flight activity pack and book series. The book series and activity pack will focus on preserving Fiji’s marine environment.
The updates also include discounted access to Premier Lounge in Nadi.
CEO and managing director of Fiji Airways, André Viljoen, is excited about the new updates coming out of the pandemic.
“We have been able to provide our pilots, engineers and flight attendants with the best possible training to prepare them for this day and a busy season ahead using the Fiji Airways Aviation Academy (FJAA), our new fully integrated training centre in Nadi with two full flight simulators,” said Viljoen.
90 per cent of the adult population in Fiji are fully vaccinated. Travellers entering Fiji must be fully vaccinated and produce evidence of a negative RT-PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to departure.
