Mr Krishna, who is captain of the Fijian national football team and plays for the Wellington Phoenix in the A-League, is one of Fiji’s most recognisable athletes and only professional footballer abroad.

“I’m honoured and excited to join the Fiji Airways team and my fellow Ambassadors, to promote our home to the world,” he said.

“I’m particularly keen on sharing the very best of northern Fiji, and hope more and more people chose to visit there.

“Northern spots like my hometown Labasa, Savusavu and Taveuni are raw and naturally beautiful. The wide open spaces there allow you to just breathe.

“Time slows down here, and you’re never in a rush. It’s the perfect place to unplug and de-stress. It’s exactly what I do when I’m home.”

Fiji Airways managing director and chief executive, Andre Viljoen, said: “We’re of course delighted to add another extremely popular Fijian to our pool of Ambassadors.

“Our brand is all about being uniquely Fijian, and having someone like Roy will help us reach a bigger audience who will be interested in visiting Fiji.”

“One of our most popular Fiji Link routes is Labasa and anyone who has met Roy will attest that he is fiercely passionate about his hometown.

“Together with Roy, we will do more to further boost the profile of Labasa and Fiji Link.”

As part of the Fiji Airways Ambassadorship, Mr Krishna will appear in Fiji Airways and Fiji Link marketing, public relations and social media campaigns.

He joins National 7s Coach Ben Ryan and Fijian-Australian sports superstar Jarryd Hayne who are also Ambassadors for Fiji Airways.
