Krishna said he was honoured and excited to join the Fiji Airways team and his fellow Ambassadors, to promoteFiji to the world.

KRISHNA:”I’m particularly keen on sharing the very best of northern Fiji, and hope more and more people chose to visit there. Northern spots like my hometown Labasa, Savusavu and Taveuni are raw and naturally beautiful.”

“The wide open spaces there allow you to just breathe. Time slows down here, and you’re never in a rush. It’s the perfect place to unplug and de-stress. It’s exactly what I do when I’m home.”

Fiji Airways Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Andre Viljoen said the Fiji Airways family were delighted to add another hugely popular Fijian to their pool of Ambassadors.

VILJOEN:”Our brand is all about being uniquely Fijian, and having someone like Roy will help us reach a bigger audience who will be interested in visiting Fiji.”

Mr Viljoen added that one of their most popular Fiji Link routes is Labasa, and anyone who has met Roy will attest that he is fiercely passionate about his hometown.

VILJOEN:”Together with Roy, we will do more to further boost the profile of Labasa and Fiji Link.As part of the Fiji Airways Ambassadorship, Krishna will appear in Fiji Airways and Fiji Link marketing, public relations and social media campaigns.”

Mr Violojen said Krishna joins National 7’s Coach Ben Ryan and Fijian-Australian sports superstar Jarryd Hayne, who are also Ambassadors for Fiji Airways.
