Fiji says “business as usual”


Fiji recovers after weather worries

After severe flooding, cyclone warnings and gale force winds, the Fiji Hotel & Tourism Association says most major resorts are fully operational and ready to welcome guests this Easter weekend.

Embargo’s and weather warnings were issued for the Pacific islands of Fiji earlier this week, specifically the region’s Western Division of Viti Levu, including Nadi and the Coral Coast.

Cyclone Daphne avoided Fiji and according to the Hotel & Tourism Association, weather is improving every hour.

“As regular visitors to Fiji know, the country is extremely resilient and once storms or rains pass, Fiji is back to normal in a matter of days,” said Fijian Permanent Secretary Ms Elizabeth Powell.

Port Denarau resumed some inter-island cruise and ferry services on Tuesday, with services to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands expected to be fully operational today.

Fiji’s National carrier, Air Pacific, was able to transport more than 3,000 people out of Fiji during the strenuous weather conditions.

The airline’s updated international schedule for today’s (April 4) operations is as follows;
