CEO Andre Viljoen

Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO Andre Viljoen said the three times weekly flights make Fiji and the South Pacific more accessible to Japanese tourists than ever before.

We are excited to share with Japan the untouched beauty of our 333 islands. Fiji’s unparalleled hospitality and warmth offers Japanese tourists a unique, culturally immersive experience – much more than just another beach getaway. Our flights have been designed to ensure guests get the most of their time in Fiji.  The flight from Narita arrives into Nadi in the morning, with convenient domestic connections on our subsidiary Fiji Link to major tourism spots like Savusavu and Taveuni. Additionally, guests can also easily do boat transfers after arrival to the many wonderful resorts in the beautiful Mamanuca and Yasawa island groups,
Mr. Viljoen said.

Additionally, this direct flight also provides a great opportunity for Fijians to be able to travel to Japan with the ease and comfort of their National Airline to witness two major sporting events that’s of great interest to many Fijians; the Rugby World Cup in 2019, and the Summer Olympics in 2020.
 Mr. Viljoen added.

Fiji Airways Nadi – Narita flights will operate with the code FJ351 with a flight time of nine hours and five minutes. The Narita to Nadi flight will operate with code FJ350 and a flight time of eight hours and 40 minutes.
