FIRST-timers to the Prime Minister’s International Business Awards, Fiji Airports, won the Excellence in Service Award during a ceremony held at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa on Saturday night.

Fiji Airports’ communications and public relations officer Christopher Chand said winning the award was made possible through the outstanding efforts of its more than 500 staff members.

“Earlier this year we had the opening of the Nadi International Airport and Fiji’s biggest gateway is the first and last impression of the country for all travellers,” he said.

“And to get recognition of the high service standards that we set at the airport is a huge reward for the entire team and the work they have been doing over the years.

“A lot of work is behind the scenes and we want to acknowledge every single Fiji Airports team member.

“We would also like to dedicate this service excellence award to our executive chairman Faiz Khan for his visionary leadership.

“He has always been challenging the team at Fiji Airports to set high standards in the projects we undertake.”

Mr Chand added that winning at the 2018 PM’s International Business Award meant that Fiji Airports would have to lift their game going forward.

“Winning the award is one thing, we have set a benchmark and now we have to maintain and lift the high service standards at the airport.

“While Fiji Airports owns Nadi International Airport, we have a lot of stakeholders who help create that experience for our passengers.

“And winning tonight (Saturday) is a great example of the wonderful relationship we have with our stakeholders and the close collaboration which allows our local and international guests to enjoy great service at the newly transformed Nadi International Airport.”
