Fiji, India ink air deal

FIJI and India have agreed on a new Air Services Agreement.

The agreement follows discussions with Fiji's Civil Aviation Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and his Indian counterpart Shri P Ashok Gajapathi Raju.

In a fruitful meeting, the two ministers also discussed the need to explore new avenues to further strengthen India's engagement not only with Fiji but with the Pacific region.

The A-G informed the minister that from April this year, there would be direct flight routes from Fiji to Singapore.

"The shorter travel time together with visa on arrivals for Indians presents an opportunity for more trade and investment for both countries and also for the region, through Fiji," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.
