The ASA between Fiji and Japan specifies the routes to be operated in both directions by the designated airlines of each country.

A statement Japan embassy in Suva today said the agreement is a positive step towards better air services between the two countries and seeks to further enhance and facilitate air transport of both passengers and cargo.
