Fiji Airways unveils new lounge at Nadi International Airport
Featuring a luxury spa, nanny service and a media room, Fiji Airways' new lounge is an oasis for travellers.
Good news, high class flyers. Fiji Airways has unveiled its new Premier Lounge at Nadi International Airport. Available to travellers from today, the 200-seat and 887 square metre lounge is located on the ground floor and comes with everything you’d need to relax in style before your next flight.
The lounge caters to every type of traveller. If you need to get some work done, there’s a Quiet Zone or Media Room which doubles as a private meeting space. Whereas if you’re travelling with the family, you can relax in the dedicated family area or drop the kids off in the designated children’s room (known as “Lailai Land”), which comes complete with a fully-qualified Fijian nanny!
You can fill up before your flight with complimentary food and refreshments including a full service kitchen and a buffet boasting local and international cuisine. You can even get a taste of Fijian culture thanks to the Fiji Bean Cart, which offers a bunch of local delicacies and street foods right in the middle of the lounge.
A barista is available to make fresh coffee and exclusive Fiji Airways’ Signature Cocktails will be available in the evening. You can also help yourself to the self-service bar, with a selection of award-winning wines, local and international beers and soft drinks available throughout the day.
You can also treat yourself to express treatments in the pay-for-use spa. The spa service is also open to non-lounge guests via an external entrance if you're just up for a pre-flight pampering. As you’d expect from most business lounges, you can also make use of shower facilities, TVs, charging stations and complimentary Wi-Fi. You won’t even feel like you’re waiting in an airport thanks to a live greenery wall and constellation lighting of the Fijian summer and winter sky to reflect the seasons.
The Fiji Airways Premier Lounge is open to Business Class guests as well as Tabua Club members travelling on Fiji Airways international flights within three hours of their flight. If you’re flying in Economy Class or with another airline, you can also access the lounge for a fee of FJ$99 or US$49.
Luckily for Aussie travellers, Qantas Frequent Flyers in Gold, Platinum or Platinum One Status will also receive complimentary entry if they’re flying on a Qantas or Fiji Airways codeshare flight. If you’re not a Qantas Frequent Flyer but are flying International Business Class with either airline, you can also access the lounge. Plus, all of these eligible flyers are welcome to bring one guest for free if they’re travelling on the same flight. You and a guest can also enter the lounge if you’re an Emirates Platinum or Gold Skywards member.
“We’re proud to be able to offer this product to our Business Class guests, Tabua Club members, guests of our partner airlines as well as pay-for-use customers,” said Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Andre Viljoen.
Fiji Airways flies twice daily from Sydney, daily from Brisbane, twice weekly from Adelaide and five times a week from Melbourne, so there are plenty of opportunities for Aussie travellers to enjoy the airport haven that is the new Nadi International Airport lounge.
