South Korea Office Closes To Support Singapore Hub

 

Tourism Fiji will be closing its South Koea Regional Office by the end of this month. The announcement was made by Tourism Fiji in a statement last Saturday. This is aimed to refocus its resources in support of the market initiative by the national carrier and expansion of service in the Asian region.

The decision was made after the announcement by Fiji airways of its new flight service between Nadi and Singapore beginning April 2016.

The new flight services provided a new channel for the Tourism Fiji Board of Directors to support this exciting initiative and the chosen strategy of Tourism Fiji as National Tourism Office (NTO) for the upcoming year.

Tourism Fiji opened its Korea Regional Office in Seoul in 2013 where Daisy Park had served as Regional Director.

“The decision to close the Korea office is a well- considered and strategic one for Tourism Fiji as we expand our footprint in the Asian Market. With our national carrier Fiji Airways opening up in the Nadi Singapore route from April 2016, it provides a range of partnership opportunities that we, as the NTO, need to focus and capitalise upon,” Tourism Fiji Execute Chairman, Truman Bradely said.

While South Korea remains a source market contributor for Fiji, in 2014 some 5,600 visitor arrivals were recorded. This year to October 2015, there were approximately 5,200 visitor arrivals from Korea being 0.8 per cent contribution to the overall visitor arrivals into the country.
