June 18, 2018 10:03 pm
The partnership between Fiji Airways and British Airways is a welcome development for the tourism industry in the Pacific, which will open up new markets for growth.
South Pacific Tourism Organization chief executive, Chris Cocker says with this recent development and their continued efforts to grow traffic to Fiji and the rest of the Pacific, they hope to see more inbound visitors from long haul markets of UK and Europe.
Fiji Airways is also the first airline to become a connect member of oneworld which is a platform that connects travellers to alliance airlines for travel benefits.
Fiji Airways is a major regional airline and the hub for tourism flow from international markets through Fiji and into the South Pacific.
Cocker says the onus is on member countries to work cooperatively with Fiji Airways to support travel packages to grow more travel out of the long haul markets.
