Fiji Airways partners with JetBlue

Fiji’s National Airline has announced its newest partnership with JetBlue, based out of the United States.

In a statement, Fiji Airways said the partnership means guests can purchase fares on both airlines on one ticket, seamlessly connecting customers between flights on Fiji Airways and JetBlue.

This includes through-check from the initial point of departure to the final destination.

Fiji Airways Managing Director and Chief Executive, Andre Viljeon has welcomed JetBlue, saying the potential for both airlines are limitless.

Viljeon said Americans had been yearning for a holiday in Fiji will now find it much easier to connect onto our flights out of Los Angeles and San Francisco.

He said research tells us that many Americans have a misconception that Fiji is too far away, and difficult to get to. With this partnership, Fiji Airways has made it even more convenient to reach our Fijian paradise.

“We have been exploring innovative means to grow our footprint in the United States, and I am delighted that JetBlue has come onboard as an interline partner.”

Fiji Airways’ growth strategy has a key focus on the US market, and with this new partnership we are presented with the potential to grow the market size between the U.S. East Coast, Utah and Florida.

“With JetBlue, we can welcome guests beyond the US given the airline’s 100 domestic and international network destinations including, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Orlando, Utah and San Juan,” Viljeon said.

Not only can Americans easily reach Fiji, but using Fiji Airway’s broad network, connect onwards to Australia, New Zealand, Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan) and Pacific Island countries using just one ticket.

This is also a win for Fijians and other Pacific Islanders who want to explore more of the United States, visit friends and family, or connect on to other parts of the world. With JetBlue, guests can plan a flight with multiple connections using one ticket.

Fiji Airways flies daily between Nadi and Los Angeles and up to five times a week to San Francisco.
