The Nadi international airport in Fiji is located in Nadi, the third-largest city on the western side of Viti Levu, the main island in Fiji.

Fiji is ready to re-open Nadi International Airport as more than 90 per cent of adults in the island nation have been fully vaccinated against Covid and amid a careful re-opening strategy in place, Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said on Wednesday. According to Fijivillage news website on Wednesday, the opening on December 1 means Nadi will now be the gateway of Covid-safe tourism in a post-pandemic Pacific, reports Xinhua news agency.

Khaiyum’s remark came as the Nadi International Airport has achieved Airports Council International’s airport health re-accreditation for its Covid-19 health and safety measures. The airport is located in Nadi, the third-largest city on the western side of Viti Levu, the main island in Fiji.

Khaiyum has thanked Fiji Airports management and staff for their consistent commitment towards a safe and sustainable restart for the aviation sector and the tourism industry. Airports Council International Asia-Pacific Director-General Stefano Baronci said this re-accreditation serves to reassure passengers that internationally-recognized safety measures remain in place for the resumption of travel to Fiji.
