Which airline just made flying easier for Aussies?

New expanded baggage policy reflects boom in bookings.

Fiji Airways has revamped its international baggage policy as travel to the country from Australia exceeds 2019 levels.

The new policy offers economy class guests on international flights one piece of checked luggage at 30kgs.


This will now be the same for all international destinations, avoiding any confusion when using Fiji Airways to connect to the United States or Canada via Nadi, Fiji.


International business class guests will now be allowed two pieces of checked-in luggage at 30kgs each, instead of just one piece at 40kg.


The new policy, which is for travel from February 1, 2023, comes amid a soar in sales, with the national carrier's bookings growing at an average of six per cent week on week.


“We are experiencing what I like to call the Bula Boom,” said Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer. “Looking at bookings by country, Australia is 24.3 per cent ahead of 2019.


“As international travel continues to ramp up, we have come up with a policy which is more convenient for guests and avoids confusion with different baggage policies for different destinations.”
