Fiji Airways Commences Singapore Service

South Pacific carrier Fiji Airways has commenced services on its Nadi-Singapore route, the first direct connection between Fiji and Southeast Asia. The inaugural flight was welcomed by officials from the government and aviation sectors of both countries on touchdown at Changi Airport.

 

Outbound flight FJ 361 departs Nadi at 2300 hrs every Tuesday and Friday, arriving in Singapore at 0455 hrs the next morning, before turning around to operate the return flight, FJ 360, at 1030 hrs on Wednesdays and Saturdays for a 0020 hrs arrival at Nadi International Airport.

 

Announced last year, the twice-weekly nonstop flights will be operated using 2-class Airbus A330-200 jets. Each is configured with 24 angled-flat seats in a 2-2-2 layout in Tabua business class featuring a 15.4-inch personal screen and 249 seats in a 2-4-2 layout in Economy class with a 10.6-inch personal screen. All seats enjoy in-seat power supply and audio-video on-demand inflight entertainment.

 

Fiji Airways expects the 10-hour flights, which reduce travel times by 3 hours and avoids a stop in Australia or New Zealand, to boost tourism and commerce between Fiji and Singapore, with both cities serving as gateways to their respective regions.

 

The new route becomes Fiji Airways’ second Asian connection, following its successful direct flights to Hong Kong. The airline also connects Nadi with destinations in Australia (Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney), New Zealand (Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington), and the USA (Honolulu and Los Angeles).
