RNZ 26 July 2020 – Fiji’s so-called “Blue Lanes” are officially open and the government says it’s expecting the arrival of 100 boats to the country amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

With its ‘Bula Bubble’ proposal with New Zealand and Australia yet to get off the ground, Fiji’s Blue Lanes initiative begins what the government hopes will be the ailing tourism industry’s road to recovery.

The first vessel berthed at the Port Denarau Marina in Nadi last week with two New Zealanders onboard.
