Transport in Fiji

Getting There
The main international airlines which serve Fiji are Air Pacific and Polynesian Airways but Korean Air also flies from Seoul to Nadi three times a week. Polynesian Airways offer an excellent pass ‘Polypass’ which allows the holder to fly to any of the destinations on the airline’s network for a period of thirty days. These destinations include Sydney, Auckland, American Samoa, Cook Islands, Vanuatu, Western Samoa and New Caledonia. Finally, airlines flying to Fiji from North America are Air New Zealand, Canadian International Airlines/Air Canada, Canada 3000, and Quantas.
Nadi International Airport is approximately twenty-eight hour from London, eleven hours from Los Angeles and just under four hours from Sydney. This terminal is situated about five miles from the town and is where most international flights arrive. Some flights also arrive at Suva Airport which is located about thirteen miles from the town of the same name. Both airports are served by both bus and taxi.
International ports in Fiji are located at Suba and Lautoka and the passenger lines serving these ports are Polish Ocean, CTC, Cunard, Norwegian America, P&O, Princess Cruises, Royal Viking Line and Sitmar. These lines sail regularly to Tuvalu, Kiribati, Western Samoa and Nauru.

Getting Around
The good news is that Fijian buses are both cheap and plentiful making it very easy to get around the country. They also happen to be the only form of public transport to make it possible to do so. Fiji Express offers the only air-conditioned tourist bus service in the country and operates tow daily journeys between the two major airports. The first leaves the Centra Suva hotel at 8.00am and the second at 3.30pm. Sunset express runs services twice a day between Lautoka and Suva with stops at Nadi Airport and Sigatoka and these buses depart Nadi Airport at 9.45am and 3.45pm. Pacific Transport Ltd. has several express and local buses between Lautoka and Suva daily except Sunday and they stop at Nadi airport as well as the markets at Nadi, Sigatoka and Navua. And, if you feel like something different you can always try the local buses which will stop anywhere if you signal the driver and are quite an interesting experience.
