VANCOUVER — Fiji Airways will fly direct from Nadi to Vancouver starting in November 2022.
The destination will be the carrier’s 20th direct international service.
Starting Nov. 25, 2022, Fiji Airways will fly direct to and from Vancouver twice a week on Mondays and Fridays.
Fiji Airways’ Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Andre Viljoen, says the airline has managed to introduce a new market because of the company’s strong rebound since the country’s borders opened on Dec. 1, 2021.
“This is a very exciting development as we continue to explore ways to maximize returns, not just for Fiji Airways, but for the tourism industry and the Fijian economy. Canada represents a new market with immense potential for tourism, trade and of course re-connecting Fijian families,” said Viljoen.
He added that the new route “is strategically timed to offer Canadians an escape from the cold winter to a beautiful Fijian paradise, promising warm tropical weather, world class hospitality, excellent in-flight service and a comfortable modern aircraft fleet.”
To kick off the new service, when commercial flights start in November, Fiji Airways will offer a limited number of seats at an introductory return fare of Cdn$599, direct from Vancouver to Nadi. Passengers who take advantage of these introductory rates can also choose to fly to the airline’s four major destinations in Australia and three major destinations in New Zealand, at no extra cost.
“Returning to the skies doesn’t just mean resuming existing routes. If we are to strengthen ourselves and grow as a business, we must invest in new markets and solidify our networks. Vancouver was the ideal choice for us,” said Viljoen.
