3Q2015: Fiji Shows Highest Level of Visitor Arrivals Growth in Melanesia

 
During 3Q2015, Fiji continued to report strong arrivals growth of 9.9 percent year-on-year, driven by an increase in numbers of arrivals from Oceania and Northeast Asia. Papua New Guinea saw a slight drop on visitors arrivals (-1.0%) while Vanuatu saw a significant decrease in arrivals during the quarter (-20.3%), resulting mainly from the lower number of visitors from Oceania – its main source region. Since 2Q2015, Vanuatu tourism has been affected severely by Cyclone Pam that hit the region last March.

BookGreener: Why you should be there : To Get Inspired!
 

The codes of luxury have changed, join our webinar and listen to true champions of sustainability share their story.

“Luxury travel today is defined less by thread count and Michelin stars and more by access to the people, places and experiences that represent all that is authentic about a destination. There’s no denying that comfort factors still apply and high standards of accommodation and dining will always feature on the luxury traveller’s wish list. However, today’s luxury traveller seeks more depth of understanding and immersion into local culture than ever before. People don’t just want to see – they want to participate. – George Morgan-Grenville, Chief Executive Officer, Red Savannah.
