Savusavu Airport Temporary Closure 2024 – Everything You Need To Know

Bula Vinaka!

As Savasi Island Resort continues to prioritise safety and enhance the travel experience for its guests, we’d like to share important news regarding Savusavu Airport. Fiji Airports is set to conduct pavement maintenance on the Savusavu runway, ensuring the highest standards of safety for visitors.

Savusavu Airport will be closed for three weeks, starting from June 24 and concluding on July 14, 2024. 

Therefore, guests traveling to the resort during this period will need to take an alternative route to Labasa Airport. This alternative not only provides a smooth journey, but the comfort of a substantially larger plane, and stunning scenery along the way from Labasa to Savusavu.

Understanding the impact of this change, the team at Savasi Island Resort is offering an exclusive half-price Labasa private car transfer at $80FJD each way (normally $160FJD).This special offer covers up to 4 people, providing a cost-effective and comfortable journey during the closure period. For larger groups, we encourage you to contact our team for a quote. Furthermore, please note that the drive from Labasa Airport to Savasi Island Resort is approximately 90 minutes.

For any inquiries or assistance with your travel plans, please feel free to reach out to our dedicated team on info@savasiisland.com.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this maintenance period.
