The Fiji Airways engagement into an extension of code-sharing with Qantas Airline has been welcomed by the Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association.
In an interview with FBC News, Association President Dixon Seeto says partnerships as such serve a benefit to the entire nation.
“At the end of the day if they bring people to Fiji, the country will benefit. This is in terms of employment, the hotels will do well in terms of occupancy and the visitors will be buying goods. All this has a big spin-off effect if more arrivals are here.”
Seeto says the government should look for more opportunities to engage in code-sharing with emerging market.
He adds whilst it is important to focus on the established markets, the emerging markets must not be forgotten.
