In Sunday’s announcement, Fiji Airways’ managing Director and CEO, Andre Viljoen, said,
“After almost two years of no tourism, we are more than ready to safely welcome back international travellers from 1st December and greet them with our famous Fijian hospitality. Fiji’s entire tourism industry has been waiting for this. Equally, we know that our fellow Fijians are eager to travel abroad for leisure, business and to meet family and friends. We cannot wait to safely transport them around our international network as soon as they are able to, subject to the entry requirements of the destination country.
We fully support the health protocols and travel framework laid out by the Fijian Government for safety of Fijians and visitors alike. In addition to the measures announced, we have our Travel Ready programme to safeguard the wellbeing of staff and customers, which includes mask-wearing at all appropriate times on board our aircraft and at the airport. Fiji is a pioneer of covid-safe international travel and Fiji Airways is the only airline in the Australia-Pacific region to achieve a Skytrax 5-Star COVID Safety rating as well as the highest Hospital Grade “Diamond” certification by APEX Health and Safety powered by Simpliflying.”
Fiji Airways will initially offer quarantine-free travel to visitors from Travel Partner countries, including Australia, New Zealand, United States of America, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Canada, Qatar, Germany, Spain, France, Republic of Korea, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland and most Pacific Island Countries and Territories. All passengers traveling to Fiji must be full vaccinated and present a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of boarding. Additionally, travelers will be required to take another COVID-19 rapid test at their pre-booked hotel or resort upon arrival, before starting their quarantine-free holiday.
