The Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association (FHTA) and members  have commended national carrier Fiji Airways move in acquiring the latest Boeing 737 MAX 8s come 2018.

It also praised the Government support.

FHTA president Dixon Seeto said: “Congratulation to the Fiji Airways on the announcement to their 737 Max 8 while we increase our room inventory,” he said during the Hexagon Group cocktail in Nadi on Wednesday night.

Mr Seeto said it is very encouraging to see the airline under chief executive and managing director Andre Viljoen’s leadership is expanding its fleet.

“There is a grand need for rooms and capacity because that’s how tourism is going to grow in terms of air capacity and room inventory.

“Unless you got the two going at the same rate and synchronising we won’t go anywhere.”

Also the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort general manager Peter Hopgood said: “The hotels and resorts on the Coral Coast applauded the Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Mr Viljoen for this outstanding initiative.”

“To have the ability to bring more tourists to Fiji at reduced costs is a credit to Fiji Airways and the Government,” added Mr Hopgood.

‘Mr Viljoen is a great leader and his management of Fiji Airways in challenging times is to be commended.”
