Good news for Swire Shipping Fijian Drua fans. National carrier Fiji Airways has put together a ‘Super Rugby Fan Experience’ package for Fijians to cheer from the stands during the historic quarter-final match against the Crusaders in Christchurch.
The Drua face the defending Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific champions at Orangetheory Stadium and Fiji Airways is flying fans across for $899.
The Superfan Experience at $899 includes a special flight to Christchurch on Friday June 9, access to the game on Saturday, a Drua fan experience, post-match transfers to the Christchurch International Airport and a flight back to Nadi on Saturday night.
Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Andre Viljoen says the Superfan Experience will boost fan support for the team this weekend.
“Fiji Airways has proudly partnered with the Drua for the last two seasons, a testament of our commitment to rugby. Immediately after the win against the Queensland Reds on Saturday, we were inundated with requests for a special flight this weekend, and we have listened.
“The high-spirited cheering and vocal support for the Drua at all home games has seen Fijians dubbed as the best fans in the world. Now, Christchurch will get to see a taste of it too.
“The Drua have risen to the occasion and are sure to draw a large crowd on Saturday. Seeing their fans in large numbers at the stadium is sure to boost their morale and inspire them to a possible semi-final berth.”
The game this weekend is all the more special for the national airline as sponsors for both the Fijian Drua and the Crusaders in Super Rugby Pacific.
