Virgin Australia is bringing forward the resumption of flights between Australia and Fiji by a week.

Flights will begin between Australia and Fiji on December 16, a week earlier than the initial proposed date of December 23. The Sydney to Nadi route will be the first to open up, then Melbourne to Nadi on December 17 and finally Brisbane to Nadi from December 18.

A spokesperson said in a statement, “We’re pleased to bring forward the resumption of our Fiji services to better align with the start of the summer holiday period, making it easier for travellers to get to their destination in advance of the festive season.

We know Australians are excited to finally be able to travel overseas again which is evident by the strong booking demand we’ve experienced for our Fiji flights since the Federal Government announced the roadmap to re-opening Australia to the world earlier this month.

Our inaugural short-haul international service to Nadi will depart Sydney on December 16, 2021 and will be a significant milestone for the relaunched Virgin Australia and New South Wales residents who have spent many of the past few months in lockdown.”

This follows Fiji’s announcement that it would open to a number of countries, including Australia, from December 1.

Australia’s outbound travel ban will expire for states with 80 per cent double vaccination coverage in November.
