Travellers will be offered a direct connection between Singapore and Fiji next year, with the launch of a new route by Fiji Airways.
On 5 April 2016, the Fijian national carrier will launch twice weekly flights between Singapore’s Changi Airport and Fiji’s Nadi International Airport. Services will operate using Fiji Airways’ new two-class Airbus A330 aircraft. The flight duration of 10 hours will cut at least three hours off the existing travel time, which requires passengers to stop in Australia or New Zealand.
The service will provide a new one-stop connection for European and Asian travellers wanting to travel to Fiji.
“This is a significant milestone for Changi Airport, with Fiji Airways’ new service bridging new direct links between Singapore and the South Pacific Islands,” said Changi Airport Group’s CEO, Lee Seow Hiang.
“For travellers in Singapore as well as other parts of Asia and Europe, this development makes accessible to them new and exciting holiday destinations in the South Pacific. This certainly adds to Changi’s attractiveness as an air hub.”
Andre Viljoen, managing director & CEO of Fiji Airways, added that the new route would allow Fijian travellers to explore more of Asia.
“Fijians will now be able to enjoy the comfort of our A330 aircraft on this 10-hour flight, departing Nadi late night and arriving in Singapore fresh in the morning ready to explore all that this bustling metropolitan city-state has to offer,” Viljoen said. “In addition, most onwards flights to key cities in India, Indonesia and Malaysia are under four hours, which adds to the appeal of flying through Singapore. With this, we’re making good on our promise of taking Fijians to the world.”
The new route becomes Fiji Airways’ second Asian connection, following its existing direct flights to Hong Kong.
