Commencing on 25 June 2015, the Fijian national carrier will serve the New Zealand capital twice a week (Thursdays and Sundays) direct from Nadi.
The launch will come just two days after Fiji Airways adds a second weekly flight on its Nadi-Christchurch route. In addition, the airline operates 13 weekly flights between Fiji and Auckland.
“We announced earlier this year in our five-year strategic plan that we were committed to increasing capacity between New Zealand and Fiji. The introduction of this new route reflects our commitment to the New Zealand market, and in growing our global network,” said Fiji Airways’ managing director & CEO, Stefan Pichler.
“We also recently announced that Fiji Airways was doubling its capacity to Christchurch from next winter, with the weekly Saturday flight complemented by a permanent additional service on Tuesdays, from 23 June 2015.
“Widening our route network and increasing inbound visitor numbers to Fiji has strong benefits for the local travel industry and for Fiji as a unique destination,” he added.
The new Wellington route will offer 328 more weekly seats between New Zealand and Fiji.
