ROUTES | Fiji Airways eyes A350 flights to Singapore, Hong Kong, Vancouver

The delivery of new jets will make it easier to chase that tropical island getaway.

Fiji Airways hopes to add more Airbus A350s to its fleet, and has already earmarked the cities those comfortable jets and their lie-flat business class beds will be flying to.

“We are considering taking on two more A350s and swapping out two of our A330s… we will use the new A350s on our bigger destinations,” says Fiji Airways CEO Andre Viljoen.

“So Hong Kong and Singapore will use the A350s as well as to Vancouver.”

The Executive Traveller review of Fiji Airways’ A350 business class cited the seat as “an impressive business class product” built around the same popular Collins Aerospace Super Diamond platform as Air Canada’s Signature Class and British Airways’ latest Club Suite.

The arrival of those A350s will in turn allow the A330s, which have older-style ‘sloping sleeper’ angled beds in business class, to be sent “to Narita and probably as a supplementary to Auckland, Melbourne, Brisbane etc,” Viljoen told aviation blogger Sam Chui.

“You do have a slight slope,” Viljoen noted of Fiji Airways’ A330 business class. “Where they are perfect is on the four-hour flight… anyone going to Auckland or to Sydney, they're not going to complaint.”

Fiji Airways will launch twice-weekly A330 flights to Vancouver from 25 November 2022, expanding its North American network beyond the current trio of Honolulu, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

“Our new route is strategically timed to offer Canadians a winter escape to a beautiful Fijian paradise,” Viljoen has previously noted.

Fiji Airways recently rolled out a fresh business class menu offering ‘Island fare with flair’ such as tiger prawn cutlets and kava ice cream.
