Fiji Airways to Launch Singapore Flights

Fiji Airways has unveiled plans to launch twice weekly direct flights to Singapore from 5 April 2016.

The flights will operate from Nadi International Airport on Tuesdays and Fridays, with flights times to suit onward connections to India and South East Asia.

Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, Andre Viljoen, said, The attractions of Singapore are numerous, from the worlds best airport, Changi, to world-renowned shopping and entertainment. Fijians will now be able to enjoy the comfort of our A330 aircraft on this 10-hour flight, departing Nadi late night and arriving in Singapore fresh in the morning ready to explore all that this bustling metropolitan city-state has to offer.

Onward connection times to other key destinations will make transiting through Singapore very convenient.

Changi Airport is served by 100 airlines connecting 300 cities in 80 countries and territories, making it one of the most important air transport hubs in the world. Transit times for most onwards flights to key cities in India, Indonesia and Malaysia are under three hours, which adds to the appeal of flying through Singapore. With this, were making good on our promise of taking Fijians to the world, Andre added.

To celebrate the launch, Fiji Airways is offering a special fare of F$999 (limited seats available) on sale from today (Monday, 9 November) until 22 November 2015, with travel from 5 April 2016. Fijian passport holders do not require a visa for Singapore.

Changi Airport Group CEO, Mr Lee Seow Hiang said, This is a significant milestone for Changi Airport, with Fiji Airways new service bridging new direct links between Singapore and the South Pacific Islands. For travellers in Singapore as well as other parts of Asia and Europe, this development makes accessible to them new and exciting holiday destinations in the South Pacific. This certainly adds to Changis attractiveness as an air hub. For Fijian travellers, Singapore is already among their top destinations within Southeast Asia, and we believe this is set to grow further.
