The approach to Nadi International Airport with its scenic views has earned Fiji’s international gateway to the shortlist of airports from around the world who have the most stunning approach.

PrivateFly Scenic Airports has listed Nadi International Airport as one of 11 airports competing in the Australasia region and was considered as one of the most scenic airports in the Australasia region.

PrivateFly is a leading private jet booking platform based out of Florida in the United States.

The six regional categories are Europe, North America, Central and South America and the Caribbean, Asia, Africa and the Middle East and Australasia.

The airports shortlisted for the Australasia region include Auckland International Airport, Queenstown and Whangarei Airports in New Zealand, Kingsford Smith, Broome and Hamilton Island (Great Barrier Reef) in Australia and regional Pacific Island airports in Cook Islands, New Caledonia and two in Tahiti.

Nadi International Airport has been shortlisted as one of the most scenic airports in the Australasia region.

PrivateFly Scenic Airports shortlisted Nadi International Airport in its 2020 list because of “the approach to landing is breath-taking with the stunning views of the Nadi Bay and the Sabeto Range of mountains including the Sleeping Giants”.

The airports shortlisted have come about through popularity on previous polls conducted by PrivateFly Scenic Airports.

The popularity in the polls ranged from iconic cityscapes to island and coastal approaches to mountain top runways.

About the awards

For 2019, the top 10 global scenic airports, as voted by travel fans and experts, found Ireland’s Donegal Airport as the number one scenic landing for the second year in a row and the United States’ own Orlando Melbourne International Airport landed in the top five.

Queenstown Airport from New Zealand was the only Australasian airport in the top 10 worldwide and was placed seventh for 2019.
