Fiji Airways is closing off the airline award season with two prestigious accolades in the APEX Passenger Choice Awards for 2024.

The National Airline has been honoured with the Best Entertainment in the South Pacific and Best Seat Comfort in the South Pacific awards.

This is the first time that Fiji Airways’ inflight entertainment offerings have been recognised, while the airline has won Best Seat Comfort for the second year in a row.

“We are immensely proud to receive these prestigious awards, which are a testament to the tireless efforts made by our team to innovate our offerings,” managing director and CEO Andre Viljoen said.

“Being recognised by our esteemed guests gives us the motivation to do even better and offer an exceptional Fijian experience at every touchpoint of the journey.

“Even as we receive news of these wins, I am delighted to announce that we will be launching a content streaming solution for flights on our Boeing 737-NG and ATR aircraft.”

The company attributes its recognition for Best Seat Comfort in the South Pacific for two years running to the fact that it has one of the youngest and most modern fleets in the world.
