Virgin Blue’s international sister carrier, Pacific Blue Airlines, is to increase services between Brisbane and Fiji (Nadi) from 14 to 16 flights a week as a result of ongoing demand and strong support for the airline’s existing services.

From 19 December 2008, the additional flights will arrive late into Nadi on Friday and Sunday evenings, returning early on Saturday and Monday mornings. Everyday low fares between Brisbane and Nadi start from A$349 one way on the net.

Since launching services to Fiji in September 2004 with three weekly flights from Brisbane the airline has seen a substantial increase in tourist demand for flights from Australia to Fiji with the number of people returning to Fiji to visit friends and relatives also increasing. Fijian locals are also taking advantage of Pacific Blue’s flights to travel to Australia and beyond.

According to the latest Department of Immigration statistics:

The Brisbane-Nadi market has grown by 82,198 passengers or 101% since Pacific Blue launched on the route till year ending June 2008.

The Australian visitor arrivals into Fiji has grown by 38%.

The holiday segment to Fiji has grown by 44%.

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, “The strong statistics and ongoing support has given us the confidence to commit further resources to this route and the additional flight between Brisbane and Nadi is a clear indication of our faith in the Fiji market and its long term viability.
