Pacific Blue to launch direct flights to Fiji from Brisbane and Melbourne

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 16 June 2004

Pacific Blue today confirmed it will begin direct flights to Fiji (Nadi) from Brisbane and Melbourne on September 9 and 10 respectively, after receiving approval from the Government in Suva.

The low fare carrier will operate three services a week from both the Queensland and Victorian capitals to Nadi, the gateway city to the Fijian Islands.

While Melbourne and Brisbane will act as gateways, the airline will also offer convenient connections and affordable fares for travellers from Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, Townsville, Cairns, Perth, Rockhampton, Darwin, Launceston and Hobart who can transfer directly from their Virgin Blue domestic flight to Pacific Blue's Fiji services.

With the flights scheduled for midday or early afternoon arrivals in Nadi, Guests will have ample time to make connections to resorts throughout the Fijian Islands so they can get the most out of their holiday.

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, "By not being forced to arrive late at night or depart early in the morning, Guests will get more daylight hours at their destination and have time to travel to the outer islands and see more of Fiji, thereby spreading the economic benefit beyond the gateway cities.

Visitors to Fiji can enjoy the complete holiday experience, from snorkelling over shallow reefs close to shore, diving through the vibrant corals, riding in a jet boat or swimming in the crystal clear turquoise waters. Well known as one of the friendliest tropical holiday retreats in the Pacific, Fiji is considered a world class holiday destination not only for its great facilities and attractions, but because of the charm, beauty and hospitality of the Fijian culture.

Pacific Blue will operate one of its modern Next Generation Boeing 737-800 jets on the route and will add over 1000 seats per week from both the Queensland and Victorian capitals to Nadi.
