Here’s how easy it is to get to Fiji

If, for some reason, you need more inspiration to make Fiji you or your clients’ next holiday, Travel Weekly has some sensational news for you.

Getting to South Pacific, the tropical destination, has never been easier.

As one of Australia’s closest neighbours, Fiji situated just 3165 km northeast of Sydney, meaning you can fly to Fiji in less than time than it would take you to drive to the Central Coast and back in peak hour traffic.

And, if you’re coming from Brisbane, it’s even closer.

With a journey time between three and a half and five hours, Fiji is an easy flight for anyone travelling from Australia’s east coast.

But don’t just take our word for it, check out just how easy it is to fly to Fiji with these super fun facts:

Sydney to Fiji takes just four hours

No, we’re not kidding. Four hours.

Imagine this, it’s 9am, you’ve just arrived into work and you’re ready for a holiday. So you book a flight out that afternoon to Nadi.

At lunchtime, you pack your things and head to the airport.

Fast forward to 6pm that night, you’re sitting under the Fijian stars, sipping a Mai Tai, wondering whether you’ll go kayaking or hiking tomorrow morning.

OK, we’re getting carried away here. We’d obviously choose the sitting by the pool option.

Flights depart from most major cities

That’s right, travellers can fly from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

Fiji doesn’t mind where you’re coming from, just where you’re going.

So whether you have the Harbour Bridge, the Great Ocean Road or the Barossa Valley behind you, everyone is travelling in the same direction: paradise.

Flights depart very, very regularly

There are two direct Fiji Airways flights from Sydney daily – which means you can leave the house at the time you would to go to work, and be in Fiji for a lunchtime cocktail.

There are also daily flights from Brisbane, five to six flights a week from Melbourne and flights twice weekly from Adelaide.

Plus, Fiji Airways have a codeshare with Qantas, meaning you can get from nine cities in Australia to Fiji. See? Easier than ever. 

You can fly business class

Just because it’s a short flight, doesn’t mean you can’t go in style. 

Fiji Airways’ exclusive business class is ideal for discerning travellers looking for a unique and luxurious experience. 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.

Plus, you get 30kg of priority tagged check-in luggage! Which means unlimited bikinis and extra room for souvenirs!
