‘Connectivity has the ability to move people between countries a lot more easily and frequently.” Acting Prime Minister, Attorney-General and Minister for Civil Aviation, Hon. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said this after formalising the ‘Amendment of the Route Schedule Annexed to the Air Services Agreement’ between Fiji and Japan. The agreement was signed in Suva with Japan’s Ambassador to Fiji, His Excellency Masahiro Omura who expressed optimism that the resumption of direct flights will increase Japanese tourist arrivals in Fiji. The A-G said the agreement will see the establishment of a more robust type of Air Service Framework for the resumption of direct flights between the two countries. He also encouraged people to take advantage of the $999 return ticket to Japan being offered by Fiji Airways. “We look forward to Japanese participation not just in tourism but in other areas like commerce, trade and investment.” “The (Fijian) Government will also be making announcements in the next few months that will give advantage to Japanese businesses to invest in Fiji,” the A-G said. He also encouraged Japanese tourists to use Fiji as a bouncing board to visit other Pacific Islands countries and Fiji was happy to facilitate.
