The direct service will operate four times per week to Fiji, with a Boeing 737 aircraft offering a checked-baggage allowance, inflight entertainment, food and drinks and the option to upgrade to Business class.
The Sydney-Nadi flight time is 4.30pm and the Nadi-Sydney time 8pm Tuesday through Sunday.
On February 1, Qantas will also add its code to Jetstar’s flights between Sydney and Nadi, while customers travelling on the code-share service will enjoy additional benefits, including the opportunity for Qantas Frequent Flyers to earn points and status credits and a complimentary meal.
“Fiji continues to be an incredibly popular holiday destination for families, couples and adventure and luxury travellers, with a number of new luxury properties having opened up on the islands in recent years,” says chief executive Alison Webster.
“We have built flexibility into our network to respond to growing demand where we see it. In this case, it’s a return to Fiji after almost 20 years, a short four-hour hop from Sydney, helping extend the summer for Australians year-round.
“The combination of Qantas and Jetstar also means we can provide more options to a destination which caters to different budgets and tastes, with good interstate connections for passengers travelling from other parts of Australia.”
Qantas will also continue to code-share on Fiji Airways’ services to Nadi. With Fiji Airways now integrated as a one-world-connect partner, customers will benefit from more flight options and the opportunity to earn and redeem Qantas Points and Status Credits on Fiji Airways’ services between the two countries.
Eligible Qantas Frequent Flyers will also have access to priority checkin desks, priority boarding and lounge access when flying on Qantas codeshare flights operated by Fiji Airways.
