Fiji’s National Airline, has announced the addition of a third weekly direct service between Nadi (NAN) and Singapore (SIN) during peak seasons. The airline currently operates twice-weekly flights on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The third service will operate on Wednesdays, starting 4th April, 2018, operating April, May, July, August and December.

Announcing the additional peak-season services, Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, says the carrier is growing the route to capitalise on growing demand from Singapore and Southeast Asian travellers for Fiji as a holiday destination, as well as from Fijians travelling to Singapore and India.

“The number of Singaporeans travelling to Fiji increased by 120 per cent between 2015 and 2016, while Southeast Asia and India have been significant feeder markets. Through the introduction of our thrice-weekly services during peak periods, we hope to provide greater flexibility to travellers from this region. Visitors can now opt for vacation days that best suit their needs, be that a short four-day trip, or a longer nine-day holiday,” said Viljoen.

Fiji Airways commenced direct flights between Fiji and Singapore in 2016, creating the quickest and most accessible route between the Southeast Asian and South Pacific regions. The introduction of the thrice-weekly flight service builds on Fiji Airways’ strategy to bring Fiji’s untouched beauty to travellers in Asia.
