Fiji Airways has recently announced its plans to launch a new nonstop route between Nadi (NAN) and American Airlines’ hub at Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW). The airline filed a request with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for the service, which is expected to operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

The exact schedule for the flights has not yet been published. In the U.S., the airline currently serves Honolulu, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

This new route will be operated using Fiji Airways’ Airbus A350-900 aircraft. The airline currently has four of these aircraft in its fleet, each named for a major island in Fiji.

The launch of this new route is part of Fiji Airways’ ongoing efforts to expand its network and increase connectivity between Fiji and the United States. Last month, the carrier announced plans to join American’s AAdvantage frequent flyer program. The airline is also in the process of becoming a full member of the oneworld alliance, which is expected to be finalized in 2025.
