2014 a Record Year for Fijian Tourism

2014 a Record Year for Fijian Tourism
February 21, 2015

While Fiji faced a challenging year politically, 2014 ended on a high note as Fiji’s annual visitor arrival number reached a new high of 692,630.

Visitor arrival numbers confirmed by Fiji's Bureau of Statistics show a significant increase of 5.3% in visitor numbers from Fiji’s major key markets, reflecting the efforts of the Tourism Fiji team in offshore offices, as well as the Nadi-based head office.

The most significant increases from specific markets are arrivals from New Zealand, which exponentially grew from 15,729 to 123,968, followed closely by Australia which saw a growth from 9,066 to 349,217. These are new records for both our traditional source markets, equating to an average daily arrival of 340 and 95 respectively.

Other key markets which saw a healthy growth in visitor arrival numbers are the USA (6,539 to 61,924), China (4,910 to 28,333), Continental Europe (1,680 to 30,585) and South Korea (1,451 to 5,676).

Tourism Fiji acting Chief Executive Wayne Deed explained “we’ve ended 2014 on an all-time high, yet we will not rest on our laurels.

“Challenging targets have been set for 2015 which the team here at Tourism Fiji have embraced and are already implementing through the activities in various markets.

“The key in ensuring we continuously meet our targets lies in the spirit of working together, which our team are great at doing. I have no doubt that 2015 will prove to be another fantastic year.”
