Fiji Airways flights Position Us As a Hub

Fiji Airways flying to Singapore in April serves as an opportunity in making Fiji a hub, says acting Prime Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said Fiji is now connected to every single continent around the Pacific except South America.

“The level of connectivity has increased; we fly to LA, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand and we are connected to Korean Airways,” he added.

“If you visualise it, we are already in a hub position. We need to take advantage of it. The reality is that Singapore will only be 9 ½ hours away.”

Singapore is a major commercial and financial hub of South East Asia.

“We have talked about being a little Singapore; we have talked about being a little Geneva in the Pacific, we have talked about being a little Dubai in the Pacific,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

“Hopefully we can combine all of those three and present it as an opportunity. From Government’s perspective, our objective is to provide a very safe and secure stable environment not only physically but in terms of commercially and financially.”
