Fiji Airways has commenced direct flights between Nadi and New Caledonia with the inaugural flight departing Nadi International Airport this afternoon.

With the inclusion of twice-weekly flights between Nadi International Airport and La Tontouta International Airport in Noumea, the National Airline now services 26 international destinations.
Australians can fly to Nouméa starting from $1,168 Lite return economy class. Whilst onboard Australians can experience Fiji Airways‘ award-winning hospitality, having been awarded the Best Airline in Australia and the Pacific by SKYTRAX.
Company Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mr Andre Viljoen said New Caledonia has great potential, especially for our transit guests.
“I’m delighted to welcome New Caledonia to the growing list of international destinations that Fiji Airways serves out of our hub in Nadi. There is a growing demand for connectivity across the Pacific and indeed the world, and we stand ready to fill this need when and where possible.”
The National Airline will provide twice weekly services every Monday and Thursday between Nadi and Noumea, with flights timed to allow travellers to connect to destinations in North America and beyond.
