Fiji Airports Executive Chairman Faiz Khan has welcomed new praise for their work done at Nadi Interna­tional Airport.

He said expect more changes over the next 5 years.

Mr Khan commented after the leading Australiaan travel site Traveller rated Nadi the “Best recent renovation” in a global as­sessment of airports.

Mr Khan said: “It is always welcoming to receive such independent critiquing rec­ognition.

“This particular recognition of best ren­ovation in the world is a reminder of what the airport was in the past.

“Human nature is to forget the state of the cramped, claustrophobic, tired, sticky and poor choice of food, shopping and en­tertainment experience we had prior to the renovation.

“As the critique says ‘Nadi used to be the worst’.But more is to be done and is being done under our master planning.

The Traveller critique said the following:

“Best Recent Renovation

Nadi used to be the worst.

It was cramped, with barely any seating, it had a couple of very average takeaway food joints, a few dinky souvenir stands and a barely functioning aircon system. This year, however, the airport unveiled its FJ$129 million refurbishment, a new international facility with higher ceilings, more lounges, improved food options, an additional baggage carousel, and new air­conditioning.”
