Jetstar’s inaugural flight between the Gold Coast and Fiji (JQ 125) departed close to capacity this morning ahead of the busy Easter holiday period.
The low fares airline is the only carrier flying direct between the Gold Coast and Fiji (Nadi) and will operate three return flights a week to offer more than 50,000 seats a year between the destinations.
Jetstar Australia and New Zealand CEO David Hall said the new route cements its position as the leading leisure airline in the region.
“Fiji’s vibrant culture and proximity to Australia makes it a perfect market for us and our customers and Gold Coast residents have been eager to see it added to our international network,” Mr Hall said.
We’re pleased to be the only airline offering a direct low fares link from the jewel of the Queensland coast to the heart of the South Pacific

“Fiji offers an idyllic escape for couples and families and we’ve already seen strong bookings for flights over the Easter school holiday period.
“We have a strong relationship with the Gold Coast Airport and we’re grateful for the key role they’ve played opening up new holiday opportunities for locals.
“Jetstar is proud to be the leading international carrier on the Gold Coast offering more than 10,000 international seats per week across six routes in and out of the region – more than any other airline.”
