With Fiji officially opening from 1 December, Fiji Airways, Fiji’s National Airline, has launched an eco-focused In-Flight Safety Video, showcasing footage of the country’s breath-taking natural wonders to travellers, all while championing the local businesses and communities helping to preserve it.

Shot across seven locations, the five-minute safety briefing is delivered amongst some of the many initiatives being undertaken to preserve the airline’s beautiful yet fragile home. These include mangrove rehabilitation projects, solar powered resorts, turtle sanctuaries and coral nurseries, among others.

With more than 84 percent of the adult population double vaccinated, and a mandate for all employed adults to be fully vaccinated by 1st November, Fiji is on track to be one the most COVID-safe travel destinations on the planet. And with international commercial flights resuming from 1st December, Fiji Airways’ Managing Director & CEO Andre Viljoen hopes the latest production will get travellers dreaming of a Fijian holiday.

“The unveiling of this production is more than just another safety video. It’s very symbolic of the journey we have been on for the past 18 months and our return to the skies in an eco-sustainable manner. The production started before COVID-19 struck, so to be able to finally play it onboard our aircraft signals that we are very close to welcoming tourists back to Fiji,” said Viljoen.

The video which opens up on Fiji’s iconic Malamala Beach Club includes a number of pilots and cabin crew in addition to professional actors. From under-water shots to high-flying drone action, the production takes viewers on a journey of discovery into Fiji’s vast and beautiful environment. At each location a local resort, business or initiative is introduced by the cabin crew member and championed for its eco-sustainability efforts. It also features footage onboard Fiji Airways’ luxurious A350 aircraft – its most eco-sustainable aircraft to date.

Current Fiji Airways staff feature heavily in the production, including First Officers (Pilots) Petrina Simpson and Vinay Makanji, as well as Lounge staff member Liku Gucake. The voiceover used throughout is also that of Senior Manager Reservations Anna Morris – adding to its authenticity.

It also features cameo appearances from Fiji’s world-renowned Fijiana womens and Fijian Mens rugby sevens teams, who are fresh from recent success in Tokyo.

The new safety video will screen onboard all Fiji Airways international flights when commercial flying resumes on 1 December 2021.
