Connections in Nadi

All international flights will fly into Nadi airport.  If you have a tight connection ( less than 2 hours ), we will recommend a rush transfer through customs, baggage claim and walk over to the domestic terminal so you do not miss your connection.  Though you reduce travel time with an early Nadi – Taveuni flight, you can risk a delay that will make you miss your domestic flight. This rush service is highly recommended and costs US$80 / person.

If you have half a day in Nadi, we can recommend a day room at the Sofitel Denerau, air conditioned van and driver so you can refresh and eat prior to your afternoon flight.  We are happy to organize this for you, generally a day room and transfer will cost about US $250.
