JETSTAR will become the first low fares airline to launch direct flights between the Gold Coast and Fiji, with a three times weekly service to commence from 31 March 2015.
The new service will offer more than 50,000 seats a year between the two destinations.
Jetstar Australia and New Zealand CEO David Hall said Fiji was a great holiday destination loved by many Australians.

“We’re really pleased to be the first low fares carrier to launch direct services between the Gold Coast and Fiji,” Mr Hall said.
“Fiji has consistently rated as one of the Gold Coast’s most sought after leisure destinations over the years and we’re delighted to deliver this direct low fares link to the heart of the South Pacific.
“These new flights closely follow the successful launch of flights to Wellington and Queenstown earlier this month and cement our position as the leading international carrier in the Gold Coast.
“The Gold Coast Airport has worked closely with us in developing this route and we’re grateful for their support in making these flights possible.”
The announcement of this new route closely follows Jetstar’s move to reinstate its Gold Coast-Perth flights from March 2015 and the successful introduction of flights between the Gold Coast and Wellington and Queenstown earlier this month.
From April 2015, Jetstar will offer more than 10,000 international seats a week across six routes in and out of the Gold Coast – more than any other airline in the region.
All flights will be operated by 180 seat Airbus A320 aircraft in a single class and will depart the Gold Coast on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
