A bit in today's Fiji Times update says:
Tourists have an optionThursday, January 15, 2009
Update: 3:54PM Tourists can brief a sign of relief after Air Pacific's announcement of a change to its cancellation policy allowing visitors the option of deferment of their holiday.
Tourism Fiji chairman, Patrick Wong said visitors will now be able to make changes to their holiday dates without having to be penalised for incurring additional cost during the current situation experienced around the country.
The tactical campaign was confirmed with the tourism industry partners, Air Pacific, Air NZ, Pacific Blue, wholesales and the private sector for the next three months in the tourism industry major source markets.
I think they mean 'breathe a sigh of relief'! I think the spell correcter or somebody was having a playful guess at the words! But we do get the message. It is generous of Air Pacific and others to consider the changes to travellers plans because honestly, it is not the right time to take a tropical holiday in Fiji. Wait until the infrastructure is fixed a little and think of those who work in the resorts who need time out to take care of their families and losses.
