Singapore – the new focus

FIJI’S national carrier has embarked on a twice-weekly service to Changi International Airport, Singapore, casting aside New Delhi and Shanghai. The airline’s intention is to use the new destination as a hub from which to link to Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Operating the Airbus A330, Fiji Airways can carry around 400 passengers on the route and is currently running at around 25 per cent capacity with a huge marketing plan in progress. With fierce competition among airline flying out of Singapore, Fiji has recognised the possibility that flights may not be easy to fill immediately.

Finance Minister Aiyaz SayedKhaiyum told local media that the Fiji government would provide certain subsidies to the national carrier. He did not specify the form or duration of the subsidies designed to keep the route viable while Fiji Airways attempted to grow the market. An airline marketing teams was in Singapore before and after the HSBC Sevens leg there to push the brand and Fiji as a destination. The airline was also a major sponsor of the tournament with billboards around the National Stadium advertising cheap fares to Fiji. Manufacturers believe Singapore is the right choice.
