Virgin Blue Holdings' Asia Pacific carrier, Pacific Blue, has approval from the Fiji government to start flights in September.
Virgin Blue, which is one quarter-owned by Richard Branson's Virgin group, said Pacific Blue it would start flying to the Fiji gateway city of Nadi, from Brisbane and Melbourne on September 9 and 10 respectively.
Pacific Blue would operate three services a week from both Australian state capitals, and offer connections from other major Australian cities.
Flights were scheduled for midday or early afternoon arrivals in Nadi, so guests could make connections to resorts throughout the Fijian islands.
"By not being forced to arrive late at night or depart early in the morning, guests will get more daylight hours at their destination and have time to travel to the outer islands and see more of Fiji, thereby spreading the economic benefit beyond the gateway cities," said Virgin Blue chief executive Brett Godfrey.
Pacific Blue would operate a new Boeing 737-800 jet on the route and add more than 1000 seats per week from both the Queensland and Victorian capitals to Nadi.
Pacific Blue also recently said it would start flights between Australia and Vanuatu from September 20.
Virgin Blue shares were steady at $2.02 at 1417 AEST.
