Fiji’s international borders re-open today

December 1, 2021 7:20 am
Nadi International Airport this morning.

Fiji’s international borders will reopen today after almost two years.

This has brought in much excitement for the people of Fiji as the first tourist flight lands at the Nadi international airport this morning.

This first flight is a strong indication of our resilience to get through the pandemic and a ray of hope for many employees of the tourism sector to be reemployed.

Fiji Airways is working closely with the Ministry of Health to monitor and minimize the risk of the new Omicron variant of COVID-19 from entering the country.

As an added measure, the airline says it will introduce an additional check at the airport today, for all travellers to declare where they have been in the last 14 days.

According to the national carrier the safety protection protocols from COVID-19 and its potential variants are included in the border-reopening framework which was designed to deal with situations like this.

Fiji Airways has an independently verified Travel Ready programme that has several safeguards to minimize risk, and the carrier has medically qualified Customer Wellness Champions onboard to enforce these measures.

These protections are now further enhanced with the implementation of Fiji Airways’ “No Jab, No Fly” Vaccination Policy, which requires all adults (over 18 years of age) to be fully vaccinated with a Fiji-approved vaccine prior to travel.

The first flight from Sydney will land around 11.30am today with 233 passengers.
