We have listened to your feedback around your on-board experience with Fiji Airways and over the past year we have worked hard to improve our service to you. That is why we are excited to announce that Fiji Airways is launching a suite of upgrades to our in-flight entertainment, food service and shopping directed solely at enhancing your travel experience.

So what is changing and how do you benefit?

Free In-Flight Entertainment
From August 1st, we will be offering free in-flight entertainment across the entire fleet where available. We are also removing the pay-per-view entertainment from our A330 fleet to and from Australia and New Zealand.

An Improved “FijiTime” in-flight magazine

The popular “FijiTime” in-flight magazine is getting a whole new look, taking a deeper dive in to Fiji’s rich culture, geography and position as one of the world’s premier holiday destinations. The redesigned FijiTime magazine will be mammoth 90-pages long (perfect for long and medium haul flights), and filled with travel features to inspire your trip to Fiji or other destinations visited by Fiji Airways and Fiji Link.

In addition, we will be launching a FijiTime app in the near future. This will allow you to begin your Fiji journey before you step onboard our airline.

Meals


All New Economy Class Menu
Our Economy Class meals across our international network have been completely overhauled based on your feedback.

“It has taken a few months of consolidating feedback from our valuable guests, benchmarking and testing to get here, and we’re delighted to roll out these great changes now,” announced Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, Stefan Pichler.

Indeed, we have consulted with members of the Fiji Chefs Association to ensure that the food served onboard is restaurant quality and quintessentially Fijian.

Some of the changes include, removing most of our burger and wrap selections and re-introducing tray service with hot meals on flights to Australia, flights to New Zealand and the South Pacific. Long haul flights to Los Angeles and Hong Kong will also now see two hot meals served. The changes will be rolled out from today.
 
Improved Business Class Dining Experience
From September 1st, 2014, a restaurant style service will be catered to all Business Class guests including a new Signature dish inspired by renowned Fijian Chef, Lance Seeto, the Executive Chef at Castaway Island Resort.
In addition, a new Signature Welcome Cocktail and Mocktail will also be introduced in partnership with Fiji Rum, along with a hor d’oeuvre service and specialty wines.

“As we continue to make headway towards our goal of becoming a leading global boutique airline, addressing our in-flight experience, especially catering, has been a key priority,” said Mr Pichler. “We’ve given our on-board cabin crew the tools to take Fiji Airways service to the next level and create a truly world-class on-board ‘Fijian-style’ experience for our guests across all travel classes.”

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Pacific Sun / Fiji Link Rebrand
By Shane Hussein Posted 17 Jul 2014

You may begin to notice some exciting changes happening to our well respected domestic airline service - Pacific Sun. Indeed, the Fiji Airways owned regional airline is this week putting the finishing touches on its long anticipated rebrand and will officially launch its new name – FIJI LINK, this Friday 6th June 2014.

“Since Fiji Airways (then Air Pacific) started up the domestic and regional subsidiary, Pacific Sun hasn’t had a brand alignment with its commercial position,” Fiji Airways CEO, Stefan Pichler explained. “The time is right for us to create an identity with Pacific Sun – an identity that Fiji can be proud of, and one which will resonate with our customers.” 

In addition to the new name, the airline will unveil a brand new look, as well as new aircraft and new training for pilots and staff. Here is everything you ever wanted to know about the coming Pacific Sun rebrand.

New Name - ‘Fiji Link’

In an effort to make the domestic service quintessentially Fijian, Pacific Sun, last year, chose to give the people of Fiji the opportunity to suggest a new name for the airline. On 27th November 2013, a decision was made and the airline announced that Pacific Sun would be changing its name to ‘Fiji Link’ after much consultation with both the Fijian public and the Pacific Sun staff.

“Over 500 people inside and outside the company participated in our surveys and the name ‘Fiji Link’ emerged as the clear favourite with about 60% of the votes,” said Mr Pichler. “‘Fiji Link’ works on a design level as well as an aspirational brand level.”

Fiji Link
 
“The new brand for our domestic and regional carrier will align with the new Fiji Airways identity, and highlight its important role as a link to Fiji and the Pacific,” said Mr Pichler.
The other names in contention were: ‘Fiji Pacific’, ‘Fiji Connect’ and ‘Fiji Regional’.

New Look

The new look ‘Fiji Link’ will be branded to be more in-sync with Fiji Airways recent rebrand.

This means that Fiji Link will adopt the award-winning ‘Teteva’ and Makare motifs on the tail of the aircraft.

Likewise, elements of the Fiji Airways brand will also be worn by the crew and be present within the plane’s interior.

In addition, the words ‘FIJI’ is inscribed and is featured prominently on the belly of the fleet’s brand new aircraft.

New Airplane

We could not think of a better way to celebrate the launch of Fiji Link than with the unveiling of our new flagship aircraft – a 68-seater, ATR 72-600.

The new aircraft will be used to transport passengers across Fiji’s larger domestic airports including Nadi, Suva and Labasa. It will also fly to regional centres in Samoa, Tonga and Funafuti. “The new ATR 72-600 is important to our Five Year Master Plan, as it will help us grow our network in Fiji and in the South Pacific,” said Mr Pichler.

ATR72

Fiji Link already has two existing ATR 42-500 aircraft, which will make way for another new ATR 72-600 and a new ATR 42-600 over the next five years. The brand new twin-engine, turbo prop aircraft is scheduled to touch down in Nausori Airport, Suva at 10am on Friday 6th June.

Improved Pilot Training

In anticipation for the arrival of the new Fiji Link ATR 72-600 aircraft on Friday, eleven of Pacific Sun’s incumbent pilots have undergone a complete ‘difference’ course, in order to up-skill their already decorated experience.

“Our ATR Fleet Captain, Manu Rajappa, completed the difference course in Singapore and the other pilots are doing the same,” explained Pacific Sun, and now Fiji Link’s General Manager, Shaenaz Voss.

“There are two sets of training which include ‘differences training’ from a 42-500 to 72-600 series, flight simulator and various ground courses.”

Likewise, Fiji Link’s senior cabin crew have undergone rigorous training in New Zealand.

ATR-Tail
 
Improved On-Time Performance

It’s no secret that Fiji Airways and the new-look, Fiji Link, are committed to improving the On-Time Performance (OTP) of their service. Pacific Sun/Fiji Link is proud to announce that since August 2013, the domestic service has recorded an exceptional on-time average of 93 per cent.

Moreover, OTP data revealed that Pacific Sun/Fiji Link’s arrivals improved month on month over the last quarter. And in April, Fiji Link delivered one of its highest ever OTP results at 96 per cent. Check out the OTP data here.

“The airline is tracking extremely well with its On-Time Performance every month, and this is expected to remain as two further new aircraft join the Fiji Link fleet later this year,” said Mr Pichler, who added that connectivity with Fiji Airways’ international schedules will also be enhanced to offer customers seamless connections to the North and other island destinations.

Fiji Link Domestic Routes
The new look Fiji Link will continue to operate across most of Fiji’s domestic island routes, including flights to:
 

Regionally, Fiji Link will be operating on behalf of Fiji Airways to Pacific ports in Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
All in all, Fiji Link will bring the Fiji Airways brand forward and support the international airline with a robust domestic service. If you are looking to experience the new Fiji Link, book your next vacation to Fiji.

Fijian Surfing Pro-Isei Tokovou-Qualifies For The Fiji Pro
By Shane Hussein Posted 17 Jul 2014

Laying claim to some of the planet’s most astonishing reef breaks, such as Cloudbreak and Restaurants, it comes as no surprise that Fiji has for decades attracted the world’s greatest pro surfers to its shores. In 2014, the pro-surfing community will again turn their attention to Tavarua Island and the upcoming Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Fiji Pro tournament, kicking off on Sunday 25th May for the women and Sunday 1st June for the men.

Hosting the crème-della-crème of the world’s surfing talent, including America’s Kelly Slater and Australia’s Taj Burrow, the Fiji Pro is a spectacular event that always delivers high drama and superb wave-riding. That said, while the big name surfers will certainly draw the crowds, we at Fiji Airways are most excited to see local Fijian pro-surfing hero, Isei Tokovou, on the circuit.

Coming from behind last week to qualify as this year’s ‘wildcard’ entry, Fiji’s own Tokovou will be making his third appearance at the Fiji Pro event after previously qualifying in 2004 and again in the 2012 World Championship –  where he was knocked out by World Number One, Kelly Slater.


This year though, the veteran Fijian surfer from Yasawa will be seeking support from the local fans to go further in the tournament than ever before.

“No Fijian has ever progressed to the third round and Isei has an equal chance as anybody to make it to the third round,” Fiji Surfing official, John Philip, told the Fiji Times. “Isei has competed in this event before and he knows what to expect.”

Indeed, Tokovou’s experience in previous Fiji Pro surfing tournaments could be his trump-card against the competition as Cloudbreak’s flawless yet challenging waves have a reputation of separating the men from the ‘grommets’. 

That said, taming the barrels at Cloudbreak will not be Tokovou’s only hurdle. Indeed, the bigger challenge will overcoming last year’s Volcom Fiji Pro winner, Kelly Slater, in the first round. According to former pro surfer, Ross Williams, the World Number One is the favourite to take out the 2014 Fiji Pro tournament.

“Kelly basically owns this event,” Williams blogged on the ASP website. “Not choosing Kelly here is like not choosing the Lakers to beat the Clippers…”

Ah-hem! Well, someone should tell Williams that the Lakers lost to the Clippers in March, so an upset in the 2014 Fiji Pro is possible!

Could this be the year our local Fiji hero takes down the World Number One? We’d love to hear what you think on our Facebook page.

Surfing Cloudbreak – Tavarua, Fiji

With a reputation as being one of the most challenging waves in the world, Cloudbreak is not a surfing destination for the faint hearted.

Indeed, experts on Cloudbreak recommend that newcomers stick to the ‘point’ and ‘middle’ of the Fiji surf spot’s perfect left breaking barrels as the reef can become extremely shallow in parts. The ‘inside’ section of the wave, also known as ‘Shish Kabobs’, should be avoided due to the sharp rocks and needle-like coral that sit just below the shimmering turquoise surface.  

Getting There and Away

The best place to stay and enjoy the surfing action on the world-class waves is Tavarua Surf Resort.

If you are looking to join this year’s Fiji Pro spectacle and to cheer on your favourite surfer, Fiji Airways can get you to the reef with daily flights to Nadi from Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

After touching down, head out to Tavarua Island where you can see the waves break over the reef about a mile off-shore. Likewise, you can also stay on nearby Namotu Island.
