Closest Airport Nadi (NAN) Getting There Getting to Fiji from Denver: American Airlines is partnered with Fiji Airways (bags are checked thru to Nadi, Fiji). You can also get there by traveling to Auckland on New Zealand Air (partnered with United), adding about 5 hours to the trip plus airport time waiting for the connection.
