Viti Levu’s airports at Nadi and Nausori (near Suva) are the main domestic hubs. Other domestic airports include:
Some other small islands also have airstrips, including Yasawa island and Malololailai and Mana in the Mamanucas; otherwise, chartered seaplanes or helicopters can get you almost everywhere in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Groups.
Domestic flights are in small, light planes. Some may find them scary, especially if it’s windy or turbulent, but the views of the islands, coral reefs and lagoons are fantastic.
Most flights are turnaround flights that return to Nadi or Suva after unloading and reloading passengers. Some flights only go once a week, so it is advisable to book well in advance to secure a seat.
Arriving before or after your possessions is not an uncommon occurrence. It's a smart policy to take a change of clothes and all your valuables in your carry-on luggage.
Fares vary widely according to destination demand. Sample one-way fares include:
Charter services are most commonly used by those wishing to maximise their time at island resorts.
