FIJI TURNS THE CORNER - NOW THE CLEAN-UP BEGINS

After two days of sunshine and with hotels and resorts across the destination reporting a return to "near normalcy", Tourism Fiji CEO Josefa Tuamoto has said it appears Fiji "has finally turned the corner."

Speaking from the organisation's Nadi offices Mr Tuamoto said flood waters had now receded and all main roads were clear for traffic and cruise operations into the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands have resumed.

Mr Tuamoto said that flight services into Nadi International Airport – both international and domestic – were also fully back on track and any backlog of passengers looking to leave Fiji had now been cleared completely with airlines actually reporting spare seats on most services.

Hotel and resorts, he said, were now in the main resuming full services and activities with most staff now able to return to work.

Mr Tuamoto had particular praise for those hotel staff who, rather than return home to their villages and families, had made the decision to stay on at their place work in order to provide as much assistance as possible to guests affected by the recent spate of bad weather.

"Now it's time for the clean-up to begin and for life to get back to normal as quickly as possible for everyone – both locals and our international visitors," he said.
