Pacific Blue going direct from Adelaide and Melbourne to Fiji

20th March 2009 - 10:21 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Pacific Blue Airlines plans to begin non-stop services between Adelaide and Fiji and also Melbourne and Fiji. The carrier will begin the flights from Thursday 4 June 2009 increasing its capacity in and out of Fiji by 25%.

The expansion follows ongoing demand for the existing Pacific Blue connecting services via Sydney and Brisbane and is part of the airline’s strategy to serve markets which experience strong support from travellers.

Chief executive, Brett Godfrey, commented, “We are very pleased to be committing aircraft to the Fiji market where we see continuing opportunities to stimulate the market with more direct flights and affordable fares. We welcome the chance to provide a further boost to tourism to a destination that has attracted consistent demand in terms of our existing services.”

The new non-stop flight will be a major boost for Fiji tourism as it will provide a brand new pool of potential visitors from Adelaide and will be the first time an airline will offer a direct service from South Australia to Fiji.

For Adelaide, Fiji will be the second direct international destination, following the November 2008 launch of a direct twice weekly flight from Adelaide to Bali (Denpasar).
