Fiji Airways will add Canada to its record of locations in November, bolstering its North American providing.
Beginning 25 November 2022, the airline will function two weekly flights between its Nadi base and Vancouver, utilizing an Airbus A330 plane.
The route will make the provider’s fourth North American airport service. Fiji Airways presently flies to Honolulu, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
“Canada represents a new market with enormous potential for tourism, trade, and, of course, reuniting Fijian families,” stated CEO Andre Viljoen in a press release. “Approximately 80,000 Fijians in Canada have not seen their loved ones in two years and are eager to fly home.” Fiji Airways now presents a extra handy method to take action.”
While restoring the airline’s pre-pandemic community is a precedence, he added, increasing Fiji Airways’ route map can be important. “Returning to the skies” doesn’t merely imply resuming present routes, in line with Viljoen. “To strengthen and grow as a company, we must invest in new markets and solidify our networks.” Vancouver was a wonderful selection for us.”
Aside from US routes, the airline presently serves 4 cities in Australia and three in New Zealand.
The Nadi Vancouver route, in line with Viljoen, is right for serving the Canadian winter vacation market: “Our new route is strategically timed to offer Canadians a winter escape to a beautiful Fijian paradise, promising warm tropical weather, world-class hospitality from our tourism sector, excellent in-flight service with our cabin crew, and a comfortable modern fleet of aircraft.”
In addition, on 4 July, Fiji Airways resumed two weekly flights from Nadi to the Pacific Island nation of Vanuatu.
