Attorney General and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says with more than 90% of adults in Fiji fully vaccinated and a careful re-opening strategy in place, they are more than ready to re-open Nadi International Airport in one week's time as the gateway of COVID-safe tourism in a post-pandemic Pacific.

Sayed-Khaiyum made this comment as Nadi International Airport has achieved Airports Council International’s airport health re-accreditation for its COVID-19 health and safety measures. He says Fiji Airports’ culture of COVID-safety has secured Nadi International Airport's re-accreditation by the Airports Council International as one of the safest and most health-focused airports in the world. Sayed-Khaiyum has thanked Fiji Airports management and staff for their consistent commitment towards a safe and sustainable restart for the aviation sector and the tourism industry.


Airports Council International Asia-Pacific Director-General, Stefano Baronci says this re-accreditation serves to reassure passengers that internationally-recognized safety measures remain in place for the resumption of travel to Fiji.

Fiji Airports Chairman, Geoffrey Shaw says the re-accreditation is a significant announcement ahead of next week’s official opening of Fiji’s international border.

Shaw says they are looking forward to next Wednesday with great excitement and to welcome their first Fiji Airways flight, marking the resumption of tourism.
