Air Pacific to Gold Coast
The Fiji carrier Air Pacific has announced that it will fly to Gold Coast/Coolangatta Airport southeast of Brisbane, Australia, beginning in December 2008. The non-stop flights from Nadi will operate twice a week using a 160-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Queensland's Gold Coast is one of Australia's top tourist destinations, which would seem to make it a good fit with Fiji. The famous beaches of Surfers Paradise are just north of Coolangatta Airport.
