Fiji Airways to Resume Service to Adelaide From July 4, 2022

On Thursday (May 12, 2022), Fiji Airways announced that they will resume service to Adelaide after a three year hiatus due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The carrier will operate two weekly nonstop flights on the route from July 4, 2022, complementing twice-daily service to Sydney and one weekly flight each to Melbourne and Brisbane. Since the Fiji borders reopened on December 1, 2021, the airline has been committed to diversifying the Australian market, as most visitors to Fiji arrive from Australian airports. Return fares are now available for booking from FJD 899 (US $407) for Economy and FJD 2,399 (US $1,084) for Business Class.


In Thursday’s announcment, Fiji Airways’ Managing Director and CEO, Andre Viljoen, said,


“We’re delighted to re-launch our fourth Australian route, which will allow us once again to bring our unique Fijian hospitality to South Australia, as well as offer local residents the opportunity to use Fiji as a gateway to other international destinations. The increase in our aircraft fleet allows us to cater to the demand out of Adelaide.”

Also commenting on Fiji Airways’ restart of service, Adelaide Airport’s Managing Director, Brenton Cox, added,


“We know there is significant pent-up demand for South Australians wanting to head overseas again, and Fiji Airways has recognised the strength of our market. Fiji has always been a hugely popular destination with South Australian travellers and it’s great to see the reintroduction of routes as the COVID recovery continues.”


Fiji Airways has overhauled their onboard Business Class dining experience in partnership with renowned Kiwi-Fijian Chef Richard Cross, and has also introduced a new suite of highly rated international wines. Additionally, guests now have access to the digital reading platform, PressReader, which includes over 7,000 international newspapers and magazines that can be downloaded directly to their personal device. The service is available 96 hours prior to departure and up to 24 hours after the flight. For their youngest guests, Fiji Airways has also launched ‘Our Ocean, Our Life’, a complimentary inflight activity pack and book series for passengers aged 2-12, which is dedicated to education the future generation on the importance of preserving and protecting Fiji’s fragile marine environment.
