Fiji Airways travel experience will be seamless for America Airlines AAdvantage members early next year. According to the report released by American Airlines, it includes priority check-in, boarding, complimentary baggage allowance, pre-boarding preferred seats on the aircraft, and improved award redemption opportunities. 

The partners behind this are hoping to make the experience of traveling with both airlines seamless and more profitable.

Anmol Bhargava, American Airlines Vice President of Partnerships, said that they are constantly looking at ways to create more choices for their customers, and this agreement with Fiji Airways is just another example of that.

He added that he is looking forward to welcoming Fiji Airways customers into the AAdvantage program and what those benefits can bring if you are a member. 

Hence, with his excitement, American Airlines will also introduce significant changes in travel to being a valuable, loyal customer.

Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Andre Viljoen also commented on the partnership. He said the tie-up through which both airlines will be loyal partners was significant for both of them. He continued by saying that output is a privilege.

New Benefits for Fiji Airways Travelers

As American Airlines' AAdvantage members will enjoy new benefits when traveling with Fiji Airways next year,  the new partnership will replace Fiji Airways' existing loyalty program, Tabua Club, to offer travelers more opportunities to earn and redeem points.

Simple Flying reported that Fiji Airways serves 26 destinations in 15 countries and territories from its hub at Nadi International Airport. The airline flies directly to major U.S. cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco. 

With the new partnership, travelers can also connect to numerous other destinations across the U.S. through American Airlines' network.

This collaboration will enhance travel options for passengers in North America and the South Pacific. It also includes a stopover program that allows travelers to spend several days in Fiji on their way to other destinations. 

Viljoen noted that the new partnership would provide more travel options for North American travelers, expanding on existing agreements.

Fiji Airways, founded by a notable air navigator, inventor, and legislator, has grown into Fiji's national airline. Starting with De Havilland Dragon Rapide planes, it now flies modern Airbus 330-200 jets. 

The airline holds a strong position in the region and is often ranked among the top airlines there.

In May 2012, the airline decided to reintroduce the name Fiji Airways to highlight its status as Fiji's national airline. With new Airbus A330-200 aircraft and warm Fijian hospitality, Fiji Airways connects Fiji to the world and welcomes visitors to its beautiful islands. 

Returning to the name Fiji Airways marked an exciting new chapter for the airline, emphasizing its proud heritage and commitment to excellent service.
