Fiji’s Taveuni Island to receive first international guests today

Taveuni Tourism Association President Terri Gortan said they are organizing a formal welcome session at the Matei Airport before the guests are taken to their hotels.

Upon their arrival, the international guests will also be part of a new carbon footprint offset programme.

Gortan said everybody who travels to Taveuni via plane, actually uses enough carbon for them to plant one tree.

She added that if one tree is planted for every traveler to Taveuni and return, it would offset their carbon footprint.
