Virgin Australia brings forward flights to Fiji

Following the Fijian government’s announcement that the popular Pacific destination will reopen to international travellers from December, Virgin Australia is looking to cash in.

The airline announced it has brought forward the resumption of flights between Australia and Fiji from 23 December 2021 to 16 December 2021 to better align with the start of the summer holiday period.

Virgin will operate up to two daily Sydney-Nadi return flights from 16 December, up to daily Melbourne-Nadi return flights from 17 December, and up to three Brisbane-Nadi return flights per week from 18 December.

The Fiji flights will be the first international services Virgin has operated since relaunching under new owner Bain Capital.

“We’re pleased to bring forward the resumption of our Fiji services to better align with the start of the summer holiday period, making it easier for travellers to get to their destination in advance of the festive season,” a Virgin spokesperson said.

“We know Australians are excited to finally be able to travel overseas again, which is evident by the strong booking demand we’ve experienced for our Fiji flights since the federal government announced the roadmap to reopening Australia to the world earlier this month.

“Our inaugural short-haul international service to Nadi will depart Sydney on 16 December 2021 and will be a significant milestone for the relaunched Virgin Australia and New South Wales residents who have spent many of the past few months in lockdown.

“Initially, we’ll operate daily return services to Nadi from Melbourne and Sydney and three weekly return services from Brisbane.

“We’ll increase our Sydney-Nadi services to double-daily from 23 December 2021 to give travellers even more opportunity to experience a tropical holiday for the festive season and summer holidays.”

Virgin’s Fiji services are on sale now at virginaustralia.com, with fares starting from $289 one-way inclusive of taxes, Velocity Frequent Flyer points and up to double status credits. The airline’s international flights include full flexibility for travel to 28 February 2022.

Virgin is scheduled to resume flights to Bali and New Zealand in 2022.
