The tropical paradise of Fiji presents travellers with over 300 islands to choose from and explore. Its tropical climate and picture-perfect beaches attract honeymooners, families and groups alike. Away from the beaches, you can experience authentic Fijian culture, hiking, diving and all manner of adventure and water-based activities.
Fiji's major gateway is the international airport in Nadi, on the west coast of the main island, Viti Levu. It's less than a four-hour flight from Australia’s major east coast airports and with accommodation near the airport you can even make a weekend break happen.

When is the cheapest time to fly to Fiji?
If you are flying from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, the cheapest time to fly is in February.

Quick and heavy downpours can be expected just as much as sunny weather. If you are flying from Adelaide, the cheapest month to jet off is August. It is one of the busiest times to travel because of the Australian winter, but in return, you will be met with warm weather perfect for beach visits and water adventures.
How far in advance should I book flights to Fiji?
If you know the dates you want to travel, it's best to book your flights four to six weeks in advance to secure the best deal.

Denarau Island, where popular resorts including Sheraton Fiji, Raddison, Sofitel and Port Denarau Marina are located, is approximately 30 minutes away from the airport. Your journey time to the airport can range anywhere between one and two hours if you are staying in a hotel or resort on the Coral Coast and approximately two and a half hours from Pacific Harbour.
Many hotels and resorts include airport transfers in their rates, so look out for these when booking your hotel for a headache-free arrival. For honeymooners and luxurious holidaymakers, there are alternative modes of transport: seaplanes and helicopters can be arranged to take you to your destination of choice. Fiji Airways also operates domestic flights which depart from the same terminal.
There are airport shuttle buses that service Nadi and Suva that run 24 hours a day, but should be booked in advance. There is an airport shuttle bus that can also take you to other parts such as Denarau Island, Port Denarau Marina and beyond. Buses to Suva also pick up from the airport with no need for reservation. The alternative is to take a taxi from outside the terminal. Fijian law requires taxis to use their meters but many ignore this. Make sure you check and establish a price before setting off.
