FIJI Airways is delighted to partner with Fiji Rugby Union in the development of the sport in the country.

The national airline is part of the Vodafone Fiji led consortium which will be pumping a massive $40million in cash and kind over the next five years.

Fiji Airways logo will appear on the Fiji 7s jersey in the Wellington, Gold Coast and Hong Kong 7s tournaments.

"We're delighted to partner with Fiji Rugby!" Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler said in a statement.

"As Fiji's national sport, rugby is part of our national psyche — as is Fiji Airways.

"That is why we are only too happy to support our national team which is so close to the hearts of all Fijians."

Pichler said they were ready to promote one of Fiji's greatest assets.

"We plan to use this to boost our profile in key tourism source markets. By doing so, our goal is to increase visitors to Fiji, directly contributing to Fiji's economy."
