Commentary from a Virgin Australia Group spokesperson

We’re pleased to bring forward the resumption of our Fiji services to better align with the start of the summer holiday period, making it easier for travellers to get to their destination in advance of the festive season.

We know Australians are excited to finally be able to travel overseas again which is evident by the strong booking demand we’ve experienced for our Fiji flights since the Federal Government announced the roadmap to re-opening Australia to the world earlier this month.

Our inaugural short-haul international service to Nadi will depart Sydney on 16 December 2021 and will be a significant milestone for the relaunched Virgin Australia and New South Wales residents who have spent many of the past few months in lockdown.

Initially, we’ll operate daily return services to Nadi from Melbourne and Sydney and three weekly return services from Brisbane. We’ll increase our Sydney-Nadi services to double-daily from 23 December 2021 to give travellers even more opportunity to experience a tropical holiday for the festive season and summer holidays.

Virgin Australia Fiji services are on sale now at virginaustralia.com, with fares starting from $289 one-way inclusive of taxes, Velocity Frequent Flyer Points and up to double Status Credits.

And like all Virgin Australia fares, our international flights include full flexibility for travel to 28 February 2022, so our customers can book with confidence knowing they can change the date of travel if they need to.
