 The most striking feature of the Flying Fijian Club is the unique collection of sporting memorabilia which adorns the walls. These include autographed rugby jerseys from various Fijian rugby teams over the years as well as an autographed jersey from the 2017 Super Rugby Champions - the BNZ Crusaders There are various other autographed sporting artifacts from athletes like Roy Krishna and Jarryd Hayne.

 “We are now operating two brand new VIKING DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft which complement our young ATR fleet. Two more brand new Twin Otters will arrive this year to give our domestic guests the most comfortable and reliable aircraft flying in Fiji. In addition to investments in the fleet, we now offer even more value to Fiji Link’s VIP customers with an exclusive lounge to relax or work before their domestic flight. And by extending the guest list to include all Fiji Airways national rugby teams, we’re demonstrating our commitment to Fiji Rugby,” added Andre Viljoen.

Fijian National Teams who are invited to the lounge include the Fiji Airways 7s Team, the Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s, the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians (15s), the Fiji Airways Women’s 15s team, and the Fiji Airways Drua.

Gareth Baber, Fiji Airways National 7s Coach, said, “When people do things like this for you, it gives us a huge boost. We always now that when we get a good experience, it becomes part of our process. And that part of the process, which takes a bit of pain away when we’re travelling as much as we do, is phenomenal for us in terms of being able to up our performance level.”
