Domestic air services into Fijis north-eastern region, suspended as a safety measure when Tropical Cyclone Tomas passed through the region, became fully operational as of this Thursday morning.

 Pacific Sun flights into Vanua Levu, Savusavu and Taveuni were given the green light first thing Thursday morning following inspections of runways and airport facilities by local aviation authorities.

Tourism Fiji CEO Josefa Tuamoto said this was fantastic news for the regions hoteliers and resort operators, all of which have reported their properties have now in the main been tidied up and are fully functional and ready to accept guests.

Mr Tuamoto said while many trees had been knocked down and several coastal villages had suffered considerable damage, hotels and resorts in the region had only reported minimal damage, mostly to thatching.

The resumption of air services into the north-eastern region is fantastic news for the area which is very dependent on tourism, he said. More to the point this means the entire countrys tourism industry, particularly in the main tourism gateways of Viti Levu, the Mamauca and Yasawa Islands, is more or less back on track.
