Guam-Fiji via Continental Airlines

Makes sense to me…


CONTINENTAL Micronesia  is in talks to provide twice-weekly nonstop flights between Fiji and Guam, according to the Fiji government, Pacific Daily News reported yesterday.

Authorities there are in the process of finalising an air services agreement with the airline, Minister for Trade and Commerce Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said.

Grace Garces, with Continental Micronesia’s marketing office on Guam, declined to confirm the talks but issued the following statement: “Continental is always looking at many potential markets for future growth. And whenever we see enough profitable demand, we are ready to fly anytime.”

The flights would allow Guam to serve as a hub for travellers from Japan and the United States going to Fiji, said Patrick Wong, Tourism Fiji chairman.

Fiji is about 3000 miles southeast of Guam. United States citizens are granted visitor
visas valid for four months on arrival, according to the Fiji Ministry of Information.

In March, the country lost direct flights to Japan when Air Pacific of Fiji terminated the route. The Guam-Fiji flights would provide additional connectivity, boosting a local economy that relies heavily on tourism, Wong said.
