The Fiji Airways flight from Sydney to Nadi carrying the Vodafone Fijian 7s team had to return 20 minutes after takeoff due to a mechanical issue with the aircraft’s weather radar system.

This was confirmed last night by the airline after families, friends and fans gathered at Nadi International Airport to await the team’s arrival.

“All affected guests will be accommodated in Sydney overnight,” stated Fiji Airways.

“They are expected to depart Sydney at 6.30am on Tuesday (today) and will arrive in Nadi at 11.25am. Fiji Airways sincerely apologises to all guests and their families for the inconvenience caused by this disruption.”
