In yet another historic first, Fiji’s leading tourism company Rosie Holidays has teamed up with local and overseas partners in welcoming the first inaugural charter flight to Nadi from Taiwan.

Using Fiji Airways’ Airbus A330, Rosie Holidays will provide ground operation support for the two charter flights from Taiwan.

The first one scheduled to arrive in Nadi tomorrow and the second flight on Wednesday February 10.

These flights are strategically planned to coincide with the Chinese New Year, and goes in parallel with the four charter flights Rosie Holidays’ is organising during the same time to Nadi from Beijing and Shanghai in mainland China.

Rosie Holidays managing director, Tony Whitton, said Taiwan is a new and emerging market together with Korea, India and China that his company has been working to develop over the past 10 years.

“This is another historic milestone for Fiji tourism as Rosie Holidays, Fiji Airways, Tourism Fiji and key Fiji resorts and service suppliers open a new market,” he said.

“Taiwan is a new and exciting market and our involvement is in keeping with our desired strategy of diversifying our tourism source markets.”

The Taipei-based tour company ezTravel is operating the two direct Taipei to Nadi air charters, with Rosie offering ground operational support.

Taiwan’s Head of Mission in Fiji, Chuan-Chin (Jeffrey Kau) will meet the aircraft at Nadi International Airport.

He will be joined by Mr Whitton and his senior managers at Rosie’s, Fiji Airways managing director/CEO André Viljoen and Miss World-Fiji, Brittany Hazelman.

Rosie Holidays general manager, Eroni Puamau, said: “Rosie Holidays, Tourism Fiji and our resort partners have been visiting Taiwan for the last four years conducting road shows and promoting the unique attributes of the Fiji Islands.

“It’s good to see that investment from Rosie Holidays, Fiji Airways and our resort partners are finally paying off.

“We hope that these charters will operate every year and provide sufficient confidence for scheduled services from Nadi.”
