With elections now over, the airline and tourism industry stakeholders feel they can now go back to business as usual.

Fiji Airways Group managing director/chief executive and Tourism Fiji chairman, Stefan Pichler, made these comments yesterday.

“Elections worldwide have the tendency to slow down market demand. You see it on the stock exchange as well as on the holiday and airline bookings,” he said.

“People don’t like uncertainty. But after elections, business always takes off again.

“It is time now to get back to business. In the airline business we compete against Air New Zealand, Jetstar, Virgin, Korean and we have to win the daily war on customers.

“In tourism, we compete against Bali, Phuket, Hawaii, North Queensland – and we have to position our product against those players.

“So, let’s now all go back to work hard to build the future of our airline as well as the tourism industry.”

Mr Pichler said the Fiji Airways Group and tourism as well have been a popular agenda item in the public debate.
