Fiji has assured Korean Air to support its promotion and marketing tourism bid.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola made the assuarance to the President of Korean Air, Chang-Hoon Chi, in their meeting in Seoul, Korea.

“We will do all we can to attract more people to Fiji, who are currently travelling to other destinations,” he said.

Korean Air currently operates Seoul-Nadi route three times a week and the number of Korean visitors is gradually increasing every year.

According to the Korea Tourism Organisation (KTO), 5676 people visited Fiji last year and it is expected to increase further this year.

Ratu Inoke expressed his appreciation on Korean Air’s service since 1995 and assured Fiji’s support.

Mr Chi has sought assistance from the Fiji Government in marketing support to boost its Seoul-Nadi service.

He said Korean Air faced many challenges in servicing the Nadi – Seoul route but remained committed and it sought support from the Fijian Government in tourism marketing and promotion.

“We continue to face challenges hence the need for working together to ensure awareness through effective strategies targeting Koreans and Asian as well as European tourists,” he said.

In this meeting it was agreed that targeted promotions and tour packages be developed to attract more tourists including Koreans.

Golf, honeymoon and business packages were identified and also important was general awareness through exposition, media and television.
