According to Brent Hill, the chief executive of Tourism Fiji, the archipelago had over 70,110 tourists in August. Hill stated that seeing the figures pouring in is incredible and that it is proof of the industry’s overall hard work.
Brent stated that expanding hotel capacity hotels gives an amazing service from Fiji Airways and its airline partners, and tourist operators provide an incredible experience. Tourism Fiji is promoting this South Pacific country all over the world.
“Collectively, the message is getting out — Fiji is the perfect place as we emerge out of Covid, to holiday in,” he said.
According to Hill, the occupancy rate has remained strong, and the domestic tourism sector is now tracking above 2019 levels, which Hill describes as “very terrific.” He claimed that local properties are performing well and would be above 80% by mid-September. Tourism Fiji is leaving no stone uncovered across the world.
Brent Hill emphasized that they are witnessing fantastic growth as a result of their efforts; the teams are doing well with the market that speaks Chinese internationally, from Canada, and from Europe, which is slowly coming up. He also mentioned that the South Pacific has begun to see some nice figures as governments open up.
“It is so heartening to see their hard work paying off and it means more jobs for Fijians,” he said.
Hill said that it was good to see growth outside usual Australia, New Zealand, and U.S. markets as well.
