Fiji Airways to Launch Direct Seasonal Flights From San Francisco to Fiji

Fiji Airways recently announced plans to commence seasonal twice-weekly direct services from San Francisco to Nadi, Fiji this summer and next December, beginning June 16.

The flights will operate from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Fiji (NAN) on Thursdays and Sundays, with flight times to provide easy connectivity within Fiji, to Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific Island nations. 
 
The flights will also make it convenient for the Fijian, Samoan and Tongan communities living in San Francisco, to take trips back to their homeland to see family and friends.

“This new service is in line with our network expansion targets and gives us further reach into North America," said Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways' managing director and CEO, in a written release. "The seasonal flying takes into account common vacation trends out of the United States. Along with the Fijian community, the Samoan and Tongan communities living in San Francisco are also big winners with this direct service. It will offer them a convenient one-stop flight back to their homeland to see family and friends.”
 
The San Francisco-Nadi flight will depart at 11 p.m. (local time) Thursdays and Sundays, arriving in Nadi at 5 a.mm (local time,  plus two days). The flight will depart Nadi on Thursdays and Sundays at 9 p.m. (local time), arriving in San Francisco 12:30 p.m. (local time, the same day). Operated using Fiji Airways’ A330 aircraft, 10-hour direct flight offers both Economy and Business Class travel options. All Fiji Airways flights are full-service, and include checked baggage, in-flight entertainment, meals and alcoholic beverages.
