Pacific Destinations Fiji spreads the Tourism Dollar

Pacific Destinations Fiji is proud to announce and launch its new Deluxe airport arrival concierge services for their pre-booked visitors to Fiji with a traditional iri (hand fan) and masi & vau lei which are both hand woven by local women groups through Rise Beyond the Reef and Daku village respectively.

Managing Director, James Sowane said that it is a proud moment for the company to spread the tourism dollar further to the local communities who have committed to producing bulk supplies of their handicraft.

“Our hand woven iri and lei will be a unique aspect of our airport welcome experience as it carries an authentic story of supporting local community businesses that are driven by hard working women of Daku village plus the various villages that work with Rise Beyond the Reef,” said Sowane.

Sowane added that the new iri and lei service will commence from Friday 1st September and it replaces the floral lei option,

“Floral leis have been the traditional choice of the past years, however, it has its own challenges with seasonality of flowers which affects consistency of standards. These new leis and fans will not wither and can be taken back home by our visitors as a fond reminder of their Fiji holiday experience.”
