NADI, Fiji – Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, is pleased to announce that it will hit a milestone this year.
The airline will surpass one million international passengers this calendar year for the first time in its 63-year history.
To celebrate this feat, on December 20, one lucky passenger on a Fiji Airways flight from Nadi will be awarded a one-millionth passenger commemoration souvenir, along with a round-trip ticket to the destination of his or her choice.
Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways Managing Director and CEO, states, “We’re delighted to hit the one-millionth passenger mark for the first time ever for Fiji Airways’ international flights. It’s a great reflection of the hard work done by our team to increase passenger numbers and revenue. Next year will be even better, as we will offer nearly 1.4 million seats on Fiji Airways; so, at our current load factor of around 85%, we will be able to accommodate around 1.3 million guests on our flights to and from Fiji.”
Mr. Pichler continues, “This news of course means that 2014 will see the highest number of international passengers flown in our history. It will also be the year with the highest load factor in our history and certainly a stellar year for the best ever profit in our history. This is good news for all of our staff, our shareholders, our customers, and for the Fijian people.”
