Fiji Airways is currently running an excellent sale on flights from Australia to Hong Kong and Tokyo. You can fly from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide to Hong Kong from $578 return, or Tokyo for $585 return. Unlimited stopovers in Nadi are allowed (and even encouraged). Plus, children can travel for even less.
Fiji Airways also currently has sale fares available from Australia to Los Angeles and San Francisco for $799 return.
Depending on your routing and travel dates, a long stop in Nadi may be required. But why not take this as an opportunity for a stopover in Fijian paradise?
The Fiji Airways sale runs until 7 April 2019, and the following travel dates are covered:
- 1 May to 15 June 2019
- 15 August to 12 September 2019
- 21 October to 30 November 2019
Here’s a sample itinerary that we found:
Unfortunately, this sale does not cover flights during school holidays. But if you are able to take a family holiday during these times, child fares are also on sale. Children can travel from Australia to Hong Kong from $387 return, and to Tokyo from $395 return. This means you can book flights to Hong Kong or Tokyo, via Fiji, for a family of four for under $2,000.
Fiji Airways is a Qantas Frequent Flyer partner airline and a Oneworld Connect member. You can normally earn Qantas points and status credits for Fiji Airways flights, however these sale fares book into “R” class which is not eligible to earn Qantas points.
You could, however, earn Qantas points and status credits for the Fiji Airways sale fares to San Francisco and Los Angles. As these book in “T” class, you’d earn 3,750 Qantas points and 90 status credits for a return trip from Sydney to Los Angeles.
As these are “FJ” coded flights, and not Qantas codeshares, Qantas Gold, Platinum and Platinum One members are not entitled to lounge access when flying Fiji Airways, except at the Fiji Airways lounge in Nadi. However, Oneworld Connect benefits of priority check-in and priority boarding do apply. There are no special benefits for Qantas Club members travelling on flights with an “FJ” flight number.
