Fiji Airways is offering some very attractive Business class fares from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to Tokyo, Japan. All flights are via Nadi, and free stopovers in Fiji are permitted.
If you’re thinking about booking a Business class ticket to Japan, these Fiji Airways flights are substantially cheaper than direct options on Qantas, Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways or Virgin Australia. The trade-off is the longer journey time, as you need to fly via Nadi. But, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing… you could break up the trip with a few days of sitting by the beach in Fiji on the way home – at no extra cost!
Flights from Melbourne to Tokyo are available from $2,609 return in Business class. From Sydney, flights cost $2,624 return and fares from Brisbane start at $2,629 return. Open-jaws are possible, meaning you don’t necessarily have to return to the same Australian city that you departed from.

And here’s one from Sydney:
You can also earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points and status credits for Fiji Airways flights! These fares book into “I” class, which earns Qantas points at “Business” rates. With a round-trip Business class ticket from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane to Tokyo (via Nadi), you would earn a minimum of 15,000 Qantas points and 320 status credits – more than enough to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer Silver status.
These Fiji Airways Business class fares are currently available on many dates, and there is no specified fare expiry date. You just need to find flights that have availability in the “I” booking class.
You can book on the Fiji Airways website. Note that you may need to use the multi-city tool if you wish to include an extended stopover (of more than 24 hours) in Nadi.
Fiji Airways uses Airbus A330s on its flights between Nadi and Tokyo’s Narita airport. These seats are identical to those found on Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 777-200 aircraft; angle-flat Business class beds in a 2-2-2 layout.
On flights between Australia and Nadi, Fiji Airways operates a mixture of Boeing 737s, Airbus A330s and Airbus A350s. The Fiji Airways Boeing 737 Business class features recliner seats, while the Airbus A350 has the airline’s newest product with fully-flat Business seats in a 1-2-1 layout.
