In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices, Fiji Airways strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage.

Advisory - Australian Department of Immigration of Border Protection Employees Industrial Action

All customers travelling from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are advised of potential delays at Customs processing for departures. This is due to Industrial Action by Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection employees between September 26 to October 9th, 2016. All Fiji Airways customers travelling from Australia are requested to get to the airport and check-in earlier to account for delays at Customs.


Fiji Airways Statement No. 4
Nausori Airport Runway

Fiji Airways advises customers booked to travel from Suva to Auckland on FJ 433 tomorrow (Wednesday) that their flight has been changed now to depart from Nadi instead. This is due to an assessment by Fiji Airways that Nausori Airport, Suva, remains unsuitable for B737 aircraft operations.

As a consequence, customers booked on FJ 433 will be transported by bus to Nadi to board their flight to Auckland. Buses will depart Nausori Airport at 4am, with the flight for Auckland departing Nadi at 10am. All check in formalities will be completed at Nadi International Airport.

Auckland to Suva passengers (FJ 430 and FJ 416) will now also arrive into Nadi Airport and will be transported by road to Suva.

Fiji Airways apologies for any convenience as a result of this disruption, which is beyond the airline’s control. Fiji Airways will continue to work with Airports Fiji Limited to reinstate B737 flights to Nausori as soon as possible.

Fiji Airways Statement No. 3
Nausori Airport Runway

Airports Fiji Limited has lifted the movement restriction imposed for larger aircraft at Nausori Airport, Suva. Fiji Airways and Fiji Link ATR aircraft operations to/from Suva are resuming today. However many flights will face delays as the airline works to clear a backlog of affected customers from Sunday.

Road transfers for customers connecting on international flights will continue today. Some international flights from Nadi will also face delays today, to cater for those passengers connecting from Suva.

A decision on whether Fiji Airways will operate the B737 aircraft from Nausori Airport tomorrow will be made later today. We apologise to our customers for the inconvenience.


Update – 7pm, 25 September 205
Fiji Airways’ Statement on Nausori Airport Runway

Airports Fiji Limited has presently closed Nausori Airport for larger aircraft, with only lighter aircraft able to operate. Further inspections will be carried out on the Nausori Airport runway surface tomorrow morning, to determine its suitability for ATR and B737 operations.

Fiji Airways and Fiji Link are using Twin Otter aircraft to move customers between Suva to Nadi, prioritising those with onward international connections on Fiji Airways. This will continue until the runway surface at Nausori is suitable for larger aircraft.

Fiji Airways empathises with the inevitable disruptions customers travelling to and from Suva are facing, which are beyond the airline’s control.

Affected customers are requested to call Fiji Airways Reservations on 672 0888 or 330 4388 to re-book flight and get further updates.
