He says 80% of the freight flights are agricultural produce which is vital to ensure the supply flow.

According to Viljoen in the next few weeks they will be looking at plans on how to entice tourists at the Australian and New Zealand markets.

He says for example, a one way trip from Australia to Fiji would be $650 but they are looking at dropping it down to $450.

The airline company boss also says, they need to always be ready for when travel restrictions are lifted.
