FIJI AIRWAYS AND FIJI RUGBY UNION SPONSORSHIP
Prime Minister Hon. Voreqe Bainimarama this evening officiated at the official announcement of the Fiji Airways and Fiji Rugby Union Sponsorship at the Grand Pacific Hotel.
The Prime Minister firstly thanked every Fijian for joining in the Fiji Day celebrations in the western division and then stated that today marked another historic occasion as the Fiji Rugby Union teamed up with Fiji Airways to start a new era in our country for sports and aviation.
Prime Minister Bainimarama said the sponsorship would help promote Fiji Airways as well as the Fiji Rugby Union.
“The Fiji Rugby Union will gain not only from flights and financial support but they will also be aided by the significant market clout that comes from pairing with a global brand like Fiji Airways. And in return Fiji Airways will get a big boost by a strengthened bond to our national rugby teams.”
“Like our rugby teams, Fiji Airways has a global reach, and also like our rugby teams, they punch above their weight on the international stage. Their beautiful planes and the smiling ‘Bulas’ from their flight crews are often the first and last impression that tourists and travellers get when they visit our country.”
The Prime Minister also unveiled the new designs of the rugby uniforms, carrying the branding of Fiji Airways on
the front and back of the jerseys and shorts of the Flying Fijians, the Fijiana, the Sevens teams, and the Drua.
