Over 300 Chinese visitors disembarked the Rosie Holidays chartered Fiji Airways flight FJ2382 direct from Beijing to Nadi on Tuesday night.

Our conversation with some of these visitors reaffirmed they would be high-spending tourists, something which our service sector needs in February.

Yan Qi, a Chinese businessman dealing with marble stones, is here with his family of eight to discover the Fijian hospitality.

He is from Shija Zhuang, about 300 kilometres of the Beijing City in China.

In terms of what caught his attention, he said: “This is a direct flight and we wanted to take to take this opportunity to visit Fiji.

“We have heard that Fiji is a beautiful country and thought to bring the whole external family.

“We are here to enjoy what Fiji has to offer. We are looking forward to the sightseeing of the Fijian villages and the rest on offer.”

 

Reception

Couple Wang Ting and Chen Zhen were accompanied with their child Wang Shen Ran, were overwhelmed with the reception at the Nadi International Airport.

“We are here for holiday with the family and it was timely to come to this part of the world,” he said.

“This is the first time a direct flight came from Beijing has come to Fiji and it is shorter. It is longer when we follow the normal route but this direct flight makes it easy and very convenient to us.”

Mr Ting is an engineer while his wife is a doctor by profession.

He said they have heard there is a lot to be offered in Fiji and will choose accordingly.
