Fiji will continue its regional dominance with the growth of the national airline carrier, Fiji Airways.
Opening the 52nd Asian Development Bank’s annual Board of Governors meeting, the Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama elaborated on Fiji’s development highlights over the last decade.
Among the milestones was the growth not only in Fiji Airways fleet, but also in their growth of connections to even more countries.
“We currently fly to all of the Pacific Rim, with the exception of South America, which we see as the next frontier for Fiji Airways. I assume that flight will also take around ten hours as well. So, ladies and gentlemen, it seems Fiji will soon go from being the hub of the South Pacific to being the hub of the entire Pacific Rim.”
The Prime Minister told the close to 3000 delegates attending the ADB high-level meeting Fiji is fast becoming the total package, a nation combing world-class facilities and connectivity.
