17/08/2009 13:02

FIjiVisitor's arrivals from Japan and the United States are starting to make a comeback. Tourism Fiji chief executive Jo Tuamoto said figures had improved over the past three months.


He said the new service provided by Continental Micronesia would play a major role in accelerating visitor numbers and enable even more American and Japanese visitors to visit Fiji. Mr Tuamoto applauded Continental Airlines Micronesia decision to start direct services to Fiji.


He said the move was a major boost for the national tourist office's aspirations in the US and Japan. "We are obviously delighted with the news and the potential it offers our tourism industry from both of these major visitor source markets," he said.


"Both services have been scheduled to feed directly into existing services the airline operates with its parent carrier, Continental Airlines, from a variety of ports within the US mainland and several Japanese cities."
