Qantas adds Tonga as a new holiday destination to its Pacific Islands network

Latest News|Published 18 August 2022

Qantas is expanding its South Pacific presence with the addition of Tonga to its network, offering a new tropical destination for Australian travellers to explore.

Following the recent reopening of Tonga’s borders, Qantas will fly once weekly between Sydney and Nuku’alofa’s Fua’amotu Airport. The four and a half hour flights will be the only direct services between Australia and Tonga. 

Qantas has been operating services since December 2020, supported by the Australian Government’s Pacific Flights Program. These flights have maintained critical passenger and freight links while international borders were closed. 

The inclusion of Tonga to our international network follows the recent commitment of weekly services to Samoa as Qantas grows its presence in the South Pacific Islands off the back of strong holiday travel demand. 

Qantas will initially operate one flight a week with a A330 aircraft between Tonga and Sydney alongside the Samoa service. 

Flights to Tonga are on sale starting from $866 Economy return. Terms and conditions apply. Refer to your GDS for more information. 

International flights are subject to government and regulatory approval.
