Booking your Flight

Visitor Advisory 1: There are several different variables that change the price of your flight, ranging from the number of people traveling, children, the quantity of luggage, and time of year to name a few examples. if you contact the flight operator via email or phone, their world-class customer service teams will get back to you promptly, normally within 24 hrs.

Visitor Advisory 2: Weigh your bag, since baggage allowances on domestic flights maybe 10 kilograms (22 lb.) instead of the 20 kilograms (44 lb.) allowed on international flights. Usually, you can check 20 kilograms if you’re interconnecting, from, or to an international flight, but inquire with the airlines to avoid showing up with too much luggage.

Visitor Advisory 3: Checking reviews from Tripadvisor provides you with the experiences other people have had with the operator. We have always used this as a guide, to add to your understanding of how the venue responds to people’s after-service queries.

Visitor Advisory 4: Upon arriving at your destination — 1st Leg – Always reconfirm your return inter-island flight as soon as you arrive on an outer island within Fiji. That way the local airlines will know how to reach you if there’s a schedule change or cancellation.
