More than 80 percent of its population lives on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu islands. The country has a tropical climate all through the year. It has many avenues for adventure seekers, such as scuba diving and snorkelling. Its white sandy beaches, colourful coral islands and aesthetically appealing natural surroundings make it a favourite tourist hotspot.
How to Reach Fiji from India
From India, travellers can catch a Fiji flight on Jet Airways or Air India to Nadi International Airport. These flights are not direct or non-stop, but have one or two stopover locations en route. It shall be noted that a different airline, other than the booking carrier, might fly the connecting flights from stopping locations under their codeshare or interline agreements.
Tourists shall consider factors of layover time and requirements of transit visa at stopping locations. This visa can be obtained easily in most of the cases but nothing shall be left to chance. Else, in the absence of transit visa, there could be problems at these airports.
Jet Airways and Air India, the two reputed Indian carriers, normally have two different route directions. These might fly to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore or some other city in the South East Asian region in the first leg of journey to Fiji and from there another carrier takes fliers to another stopover city and from thereon to Nadi International Airport.
An alternative route has a stop in one of the Australian cities and then to this destination. Cheap flights to Fiji are operated from major Indian cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore.
Cities in India are also connected to this island nation by international airlines like Qantas, Singapore Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways and a few others.
