A new world of travel possibilities has opened up to American Airlines rewards members. Fiji Airways, Fiji’s flag carrier, has joined American Airlines AAdvantage travel rewards program, allowing rewards members to now use their points to book a trip to the South Pacific, including the Fiji archipelago and its 330 dreamy islands.

The South Pacific is a large region that consists of the islands of Polynesia, Micronesia, and Melanesia, of which Hawaii, Fiji, New Zealand, Tonga, the Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea, and dozens more paradisiacal island nations are part.

Fiji Airways flies nonstop to Nadi on Fiji’s main island from three US cities, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Honolulu. From Nadi, Fiji Airways flies to other Fiji destinations, to a multitude of South Pacific islands, as well as to the east and south coasts of Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and even Japan.

In the US, Fiji Airways is associated with American Airlines, so if you don’t live in either of those three US cities, you can still reach Fiji, and all the other destinations served by Fiji Airways, easily, albeit, with one or more stops along the way. You can also book your trips on the websites of either Fiji Airways or American Airlines.

At the 2024 Skytrax World Airline Awards, Fiji Airways ranked as the 14th best airline in the world, well ahead of any US airlines (Delta Air Lines ranked 21st while American Airlines ranked 78th). In 2024, Fiji Airways was given the titles of the best airline in Australia/Pacific, the best economy class in Australia/Pacific, the best airline staff in Australia/Pacific, the best cabin crew in Australia/Pacific, and the best business class onboard catering in Australia/Pacific.
