New Fiji-India air services agreement to spur tourism

Published on : Friday, March 17, 2017

planeReplacing the previous four decades old air services agreement, Fiji and India have signed a new one, Bernama News reported.

 

The new agreement, which ensures ease of travel between the two countries, is expected to spur economic growth and create opportunities for trade, investment and tourism.

 

“Much has changed in aviation and in the world economy in the time since that original agreement was signed, and a new agreement was needed that was in line with the modern economies of the two countries and serve the vastly increased need for air transport,” Fiji’s Department of Information said in a statement.

 

“The new air services agreement has been negotiated to meet the conditions that exist now and will exist in the foreseeable future,” it said.

 

Earlier this week, Fiji Airways and India’s Jet Airways formed a codeshare partnership that offers guests travelling on both carriers convenient and seamless connectivity.

 

Fiji is now in the process of reviewing and updating its air services agreements with other countries, with the goal of increasing the scope and quality of economic activity and connectivity while at the same time protecting its civil aviation industry.
