The carrier is on alert for the possibility of a category 3 cyclone, which might affect flights to Nadi Airport.

Passengers flying to Fiji are being offered options to change their travel plans and avoid any cyclone, which might fully develop in the region today and tomorrow.

There is a tropical depression in the area, and the forecaster MetService described its potential to become a cyclone as 'moderate'.
