Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, has announced the extension of its seasonal San Francisco – Nadi flights to a year-round service, following a successful first year of operations. The direct San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Fiji (NAN) services began mid-2016.

The new year-round services sees the Fijian carrier fly between SFO and NAN twice a week, increasing to three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday) in the high season from June through August and December.

Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, Andre Viljoen said: “Our expansion out of SFO represents our position as the premier carrier for Fiji and the South Pacific, as well as being a gateway carrier to Australia and New Zealand.”

He added: “We are buoyed by the increasing demand from business, leisure and visiting friends/family (VFR) segments to the South Pacific and beyond from the San Francisco Bay Area and the greater Northwest.”

San Francisco International Airport Director Ivar C. Satero said, “We are thrilled that Fiji Airways has chosen SFO for expanded year-round service. This move validates the strong market for nonstop flights between San Francisco and Fiji, and we are pleased that our customers can now enjoy Fiji Airways’ award-winning service year-round.”

Fiji Airways’ San Francisco to Nadi, Fiji flight will depart 11.00 pm (local time) arriving in Nadi at 5.10 am (local time, +2 days).

The flight will depart Nadi at 10:15 p.m. (local time), arriving in San Francisco 1:45 p.m. (local time, the same day).

Operated using Fiji Airways’ A330 aircraft, 10-hour direct flights offer both Economy and Business Class travel options.

All Fiji Airways flights are full-service and include checked and carry-on baggage, in-flight entertainment, meals and alcoholic beverages.
