Chinese travelers wanting to spend their next New Year’s holiday in the South Pacific can include Fiji on their list of easily accessible destinations, thanks to a new partnership between Fiji Airways and Fiji-based tourism leader Rosie Holidays.
Together with Fiji Airways, Rosie Holidays plans to operate charter flights to the Fijian city of Nadi from both Shanghai and Beijing during the Chinese New Year celebrations in February 2016. The planned flights, four in total, will help introduce 1,100 new Chinese tourists to Fiji. This is more than double the 500 travelers who visited Fiji earlier this year using two initial charter flights from Rosie Holidays.
The new charter flights are an important step in Fiji’s overall strategy to generate more tourism in the region during what is typically a low point in the season. Taking advantage of the high number of outbound tourists from China during New Year's celebrations is a move that makes sense for both countries. It is hoped that the initiative will benefit not only Rosie Holidays, a 100 percent Fijian owned and operated company employing over 600 people, but also many other players in the hotel and tourism industry throughout Fiji.
