Plan Your Travel To Fiji
With daily flights from both New Zealand & Australia and low cost carriers, travel to Fiji has become easier and a perfect holiday destination over other tropical Islands that only have flights a couple of times a week.
If you are planning to travel to Fiji, you need to be prepared and aware of all the different options available so you can get the best deal.
The International Airport is situated on the outskirts of Nadi township, which is located on Fiji’s major Island Viti Levu. Fiji is also home to their national Airline carrier – Air Pacific. They have friendly Fijian staff and run a great service.
Air New Zealand along with Air Pacific have regular flights to Fiji from New Zealand. Both Virgin Blue and Air Pacific offer regular services from Australian destinations. Air Pacific also has a wider service from the States, Canada and other Pacific destinations.
ARRIVING AT FIJI
The majority of the arrivals into Fiji are by flying, landing at Nadi International Airport. There is something wonderful about getting of the plane into the warm weather and being greeted by friendly Fijians singing in the arrivals terminal.
There are also cruise ships that visit Fiji and those people would clear customs and immigration at the Suva Port. Then there are also a few people who arrive into Fiji by sea on yachts and they also need to clear customs & immigration at one of the ports.

If you are planning to travel to Fiji you should also be aware that it is a tropical climate and it does have mosquitoes. If you have allergies to them, I would strongly suggest taking antihistamines with you in case you get bitten. Having said that, the resorts are very good often spraying daily to keep them away and if you remember to pack an insect repellent I am sure you will be fine.
Once you have arrived at Fiji, unless you are on a package tour, where excursions are taken care of, we recommend you hire a car. The Island is large and mountainous in areas. There are lots of exciting places to visit and the only way to get around the island in your own time and at your own pace is by car. You could use a taxi or bus service, but they don’t always run on time and in the case of a taxi, would work out much more expensive than car hire. There are plenty of places to hire a car from, including the airport.
When travelling to Fiji, from an infected Yellow Fever country and if you are over the age of one, you must obtain an International Certificate of Vaccination for Yellow Fever. Like when travelling to any tropical destination it is also a wise idea to check that your vaccinations are up to date.
While in Fiji it is not advisable to drink the tap water. Generally the water at the resorts has been treated and is OK to drink, but you are best to check with the staff. If you are away on a day trip it is advisable to take and only drink bottled water.
If you are planning to travel to Fiji in their busy season during the winter months, you are best to book your flights early to ensure getting a good deal as the seats full up fast. Enjoy your trip.
