TOURISM FIJI APPLAUDS PACIFIC BLUE DECISION TO LAUNCH NON-STOP FLIGHTS FROM ADELAIDE AND MELBOURNE TO NADI

Tourism Fiji Regional Director Australia Paresh Pant has roundly applauded the Pacific Blue Airlines announcement to begin non-stop services between Adelaide and Fiji and Melbourne and Fiji from 04 June 2009.

Mr Pant said that while announcement would play a major role in enabling even more Victorians and South Australians to visit Fiji, the airline's decision spelled particularly good news for the national tourist office's aspirations in South Australia. 

"The new Pacific Blue Adelaide-Nadi service is in fact the first ever direct air service between South Australia and Fiji and is very timely given that South Australia has always represented a latent source of visitor arrivals for the destination,' he said. 

"The new services will undoubtedly accelerate our steadily growing visitor numbers from Australia," he said.

Mr Pant said the national tourist office was already planning a series of key industry seminars in both states.

Australian visitor arrivals to Fiji in 2008 grew for the third year running with last year's figures surpassing the 2007 total by a healthy 18 per cent.

A total of 233,801 Australians visited Fiji in the 12 month period January to December 2008 adding a further 35,581 on top of the 2007 total.
