Fiji: Strong demand from Aussies

Demand for a Fiji holiday has seen 66% of all international outbound flights from Australia in October being booked directly to the destination and accounting for 29% of all flights being made, second only to domestic travel.

Hotels and resorts are seeing significant bookings for multi-generation families. Many resorts are booking out, and according to one of Australia’s largest online travel agencies, 39% of all bookings made to Fiji have been made for December and 29% for January, with 2022 quickly filling as well, which is a real boost for the tourism industry after two years of virtually no tourism.

Tourism Fiji's vax message

Tourism Fiji has a new initiative to encourage all Fijians to be ready to welcome back international visitors when travel resumes. The initiative communicates a simple, but important, message in a bid to reach 100% vaccination of eligible population in Fiji.

The tourism industry in Fiji continues to show its resilience and determination to get back to business by leading the way with getting vaccinated.

Fiji is high on the list of New Zealanders’ travel aspirations lists right now and many would pack their bags and go if the borders opened now, according to research released late last week.

Tourism Fiji partnered with Mediaworks at the end of 2020 to survey Kiwis around their mindset towards Fiji for a holiday. The research targeted listeners on three radio stations – MoreFM, The Breeze and George FM.
