Getting to Fiji



Fiji - an aerial view Situated about two-thirds of the way between Hawaii and New Zealand, Fiji is pretty easy to get to. Centrally located in the South Pacific, Fiji’s unique geographic location makes it the ideal hub for flights that cross the southern Pacific from Australia to Los Angles or Hawaii. A key stopover for people traveling on Round-The-World (RTW) tickets, Fiji is a major travel destination for many people.

If you are planning to take a trip to Fiji, getting here is pretty simple and straightforward, with numerous airlines landing at the Nadi International Airport on a regular basis. Currently a number of international airlines have daily flights into Nadi. Located some 9 km north of Central Nadi, the Nadi International Airport is a bustling busy place with roughly a million passengers landing here every year. Upon your arrival, you are most likely to be greeted by a welcoming party that will serenade you with local tunes, as you enter the airport.

The airport terminals are located on the first floor of the Nadi International Airport, while on the ground floor you will find travel agents, tour offices and other local services. A 24-hour bank, a post office, a cafeteria, a restaurant, a luggage storage area and a duty-free shop can also be found at the airport as well. Qantas, Air New Zealand, Aircalin, Air Pacific, Virgin Blue and Solomon Air are just a few of the many airlines that land here.

Fiji’s second international airport is the Nausori International Airport located some 23 km of downtown Suva. A much smaller airport than the one at Nadi, this airport is mainly used by businessmen who want to land in the capital, and for domestic flights to other islands. Only a handful of international airlines land at Nausori Airport.

When arriving in Fiji, one thing to keep in mind is that Fiji Customs has a Red and Green Channel system. If you are carrying restricted or commercial goods, or goods that exceed your VAT concession, you will need to proceed through the Red Channel, otherwise you may use the Green Channel. Also all visitors Leaving Fiji on international flights need to pay a F$ 20 departure tax.

If you like, you can get to Fiji by sea, however, be prepared for a long journey. A good alternative is to come here via a cruise ship or yacht, as your journey will be much more comfortable. A popular stopover for yachts cruising the Pacific, the best time to sail into Fiji is during the winter months. Fiji has four ports of entry: Lautoka, Savusavu, Levuka and Suva.
