Fiji Tourism sees potential in India market

Fiji Tourism sees great growth from emerging markets like India and China. Speaking exclusively to Express TravelWorld on the sidelines of the Fiji Tourism Expo 2017 (FTE) being held here at the Denarau Island Convention Centre, Sheraton Fiji in Nadi, Fiji Tourism Minister, Faiyaz Koya said, “We see India as a country with a lot of potential for Fiji Tourism and we have been concentrating on growing the India market. But we wanted the right connectivity. Now with Jet Airways which connects more than 20 Indian cities, we have the right partner to push numbers to our country.”

Mathew Stoekler, CEO, Fiji Tourism, informed that 2016 was a great year for Fiji Tourism. “We saw a five per cent growth in visitor arrivals. And this was despite challenges like Cyclone Winston. So we are looking at 2017 with a positive outlook. We have lots of new products in the luxury segment like Sheraton Tokoriki Beach Resort, Marriott Momi Bay, among others. Fiji is not just about family holidays but also high end luxury products.”

He added, “The recent modernisation project at Nadi Airport is in line with our tourism focus. Also we expect to drive tourism from emerging markets like India on the back of our new Fiji Airways service from Singapore.”
