Fiji Airways has launched its inaugural direct service between Suva and Sydney.

The new direct connection between Fiji’s capital and Australia’s largest city took off for the first time on Friday and will now be operated twice a week. Flights will depart Suva every Monday and Friday at 1015, while the return leg will leave Sydney at 1420. All flights will be operated using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

“We’re excited about the introduction of this new service, which will allow Australian travellers to further explore and experience all that Fiji has to offer,” said Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways’ managing director & CEO.

“The introduction of the direct Sydney to Suva flight will not only open up tourism for Suva, Pacific Harbour and surrounding islands, but also provide more convenient travel options for government and business travellers.

“The new service is a clear demonstration of our desire to grow our network, and boost Fijian tourism and economy,” he added.

And Fiji Airways will continue to expand its links from Suva new month. Launching in June 2014, a new service operated by regional airline Fiji Link will connect Suva with Samoa. Flights will be timed to allow passengers from Samoa to connect with Fiji Airways’ services to Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane or Tonga.
