Add these guys to your site, very reliable, we used them both ways.

Most buses wait in the coach park which is at the end of Intl arrivals. Exit the arrivals area and walk straight ahead past the car rental offices.
Local Bus: Local shuttle bus runs ~every 5 mins 0700-1830 from outside the terminal to town very cheaply (FJD$0.50). Takes 20 mins. Tourist information and other airport officials may deny its existence and head you towards taxis. Indeed on my visit in May 2006 I was unable to find it either!!

Notes from a Traveller October 2009: 'We arranged for "Sunset" buses to pick us up - they apparently arrived under the name of "Sunrise" but operating as Sunset (The sunset timetable is unchanged from the one you have posted). Buses don't necessarily need to be booked - just show up. However, some apparently get full (Pacific was full for early morning). Bus timetables are apparently posted at the bus station, outside the airport near the domestic side (so we were told). A local told us that taxis returning from Suva/Pacific Harbour to Nadi are willing to charge the same/similar prices as buses. since they are heading that way anyway (we caught a taxi back at FJD$15 pp, 30 total) - it's a good idea to have a google map print out of the towns you will pass to know where your stop is.'
Pacific Transport Ltd: Pacific Transport has several express and local buses between Lautoka and Suva Mon-Sat via the Queen's Road. They all stop at the domestic terminal at Nadi Airport and the markets at Nadi Town, Sigatoka, and Navua. The Fiji Visitors Bureau usually has schedules at its offices. The express buses take ~4 hrs between Nadi and Suva, compared to 5 hrs on the local stages. Cost: The Nadi-Pacific Harbour fare is FJD$20, more to Suva. Contact: Tel 700044 in Nadi, 304366 in Suva. Notes from a Traveller October 2009: 'Some buses apparently get full (Pacific was full for early morning). Bus timetables are apparently posted at the bus station, outside the airport near the domestic side (so we were told).
