American Airlines welcomes Fiji Airways to the world of AAdvantage

    Members will enjoy priority benefits and enhanced redemption on both airlines

FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines announced that Fiji Airways, Fiji’s national airline, will join the award-winning AAdvantage® travel rewards program in the coming year, offering members a host of benefits as well as earning and redemption capabilities when traveling on either airline.

This collaboration means that AAdvantage® members will enjoy a seamless experience when traveling on Fiji Airways, receiving benefits such as priority check-in, priority boarding, complimentary baggage allowance, preferred seats and enhanced award redemption.     

“We are taking our partnership with Fiji Airways one step further by offering our mutual customers the opportunity to unlock more destinations and travel experiences through the AAdvantage® program,” said Anmol Bhargava, American’s Vice President of Partnerships. “We look forward to welcoming Fiji Airways customers into the AAdvantage® program so they can experience all the ways we deliver on our commitment that travel is better as an AAdvantage® member.”

AAdvantage® is the longest running travel loyalty program in the world — the program started in 1981 to reward frequent flyers. Now, AAdvantage® is much more than a frequent flyer program — it’s a travel rewards program that gives members access to unparalleled experiences, with more ways to earn and use miles, and more rewards and status benefits.   

“This loyalty partnership marks a significant milestone, bringing together two renowned carriers to offer new benefits to millions of travelers,” said Fiji Airways Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Andre Viljoen. “We are excited about the positive impact this collaboration will have on both our airlines and our guests who will benefit from the exclusive perks.”

The South Pacific airline, which serves 26 destinations in 15 countries and territories, will become a full member of oneworld in 2025.

“With this partnership, Fiji Airways is set to gain access to a vast network of American travelers, potentially increasing visitor arrivals to the enchanting destination of Fiji,” added Viljoen. “The allure of Fiji's pristine beaches, vibrant culture and warm hospitality is expected to attract a growing number of American tourists, contributing to the nation’s thriving tourism industry.”
