Fiji Airways is set to begin direct flights between Canberra and Nadi, Fiji, with the option for capital city flyers to head onwards to Los Angeles, San Francisco and even Vancouver.
The national airline will join officials from Canberra Airport and the ACT and Fiji governments on Friday April 14 to formally launch the flights, which will rely on a Boeing 737 MAX with eight business class recliners and 162 economy seats.
To mark the occasion, one of Fiji Airways’ Boeing 737 MAX jets will journey from Nadi to Canberra on Friday morning and return later that evening.
In the exclusive review of Fiji Airways’ Boeing 737 MAX business class, Executive Traveller found them well-suited to these short hops between Australia and Nadi, thanks to a relaxing recline and room to stretch your legs, useful at-seat storage, HD video and inflight WiFi.
Full details of Fiji Airways’s schedule, including how often the flights will run, will be revealed at Friday’s launch event.
The airline is clearly hoping to tempt ACT residents with a tropical getaway, especially as winter approaches.
