Air Nauru to service Fiji route

1604 FJT
Friday, January 26, 2007

Update: 4.05pm Air Nauru will begin services between Nauru and Fiji in the very near future.

This follows the signing of an Air Services Agreement between the two countries today.

Minister of Transport, Works and Energy Manu Korovulavula said that until today, there was no Air Services Agreement between Fiji and Nauru.

Mr. Korovulavula said the President of the Republic of Nauru Dr. Hammer de Robert and Fijis former Prime Minister the late Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara had made an agreement a decade ago for Air Nauru to fly to Fiji.

He said the signing of the agreement this morning perpetuates the spirit of friendship initiated by our two great leaders.

"The agreement is also in place to guide the conduct of traffic rights between the two countries," he added.

The agreement is envisaged to encourage trade between the two island nations.

The Minister hopes that the friendly and mutual environment of understanding between Fiji and Nauru will live on in an effort to explore and provide opportunities for their respective citizens.
