October 20, 2015 1:21 am
National carrier, Fiji Airways is in the final stages of securing Singapore as its next destination.
Chief Executive Andre Vilgoen made the revelation while opening the 2015 Fiji Tourism Industry Day today in Nadi.
Viljoen says the Airline is trekking well financially with the first half of this year already reaching $17.5m in profits.
The CEO told the 340 delegates at the Industry Day that the growing number of visitors flocking our shores is indicative of the work they are putting in to prop Fiji as a leading destination.
He said, for a small island nation, Fiji’s national carrier is punching well above its weight as reflected in the profits gained over the past three years.
He says that with the arrival of the new AirBus A330 – and 40 more seats, Fiji can only expect profound growth in tourist arrival and a boom in the economy.
