Our flights have been designed to ensure guests get the most of their time in Fiji. The flight from Narita arrives into Nadi in the morning, with convenient domestic connections on our subsidiary Fiji Link to major tourism spots like Savusavu and Taveuni. Additionally, guests can also easily do boat transfers after arrival to the many wonderful resorts in the beautiful Mamanuca and Yasawa island groups,” 



“Additionally, this direct flight also provides a great opportunity for Fijians to be able to travel to Japan with the ease and comfort of their National Airline to witness two major sporting events that’s of great interest to many Fijians; the Rugby World Cup in 2019, and the Summer Olympics in 2020.” Mr Viljoen added.
