Fiji Airways, Fiji´s National Airline, has announced plans to commence twice-weekly flights to Vava´u, Tonga through its hub in Nadi, Fiji starting April 2, 2016.
Vava´u is located 568 miles southeast of Nadi, Fiji. This northern region of Tonga has more than 60 islands surrounded by coral gardens, remote beaches, and breathtaking lagoons. A tropical playground with pristine turquoise waters awaits visitors year-round that seek snorkeling, kayaking, off-road trekking, kite surfing, sailing, diving, and big game fishing adventures.
But the island´s most fascinating attraction is whale watching. From June to November, visitors can observe, and even swim with the Humpback whales that have returned to care for their young in Tonga´s warm waters.
The new flight schedule offers easy connectivity from Fiji Airways´ international gateways, with especially short connectivity for North American travellers connecting through Nadi, Fiji. These new flights also offer convenience for former Vava´u residents now living in the United States to return home.
Founded in 1951, Fiji Airways Group comprises of Fiji Airways, Fiji´s National Airline and its subsidiaries: Fiji Link, its domestic and regional carrier, Pacific Call Comm Ltd, and a 38.75 percent stake in the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa on Denarau Island, Nadi.
