Fully vaccinated visitors into Fiji will no longer be required to produce a COVID-19 pre-departure PCR or Rapid Antigen Test, the Fijian Government announced. 

The change applies to all international visitors entering Fiji by air or sea and is a move that is in line with best practice entry requirements among highly vaccinated communities. It will save costs for travellers and make travelling to the Pacific Island destination that much easier.

From Sunday 1 May, all visitors aged 16 years and above must be fully vaccinated. This change comes as more people globally are now vaccinated and it is to support not only international travellers but Fiji’s local communities.

All international travellers entering Fiji will now only need to follow the below entry requirements.

• Be fully vaccinated if you are 16 years old and above with a Fiji recognised dose

• Book an in-country COVID-19 RAT prior to departure to Fiji. The test must be completed within 48 – 72 hours of arrival into Fiji. These can be booked at entrytestfiji.com

• Have trusted travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage

Brent Hill, Tourism Fiji CEO said, “this is yet another significant step for Fiji, making it easier than ever to travel to our idyllic shores from around the globe. The Fijian Government has continued to respond to data and science, and moved quickly to make these changes, as more countries around the world also relaxed their protocols. There has never been a better, simpler time to come to Fiji than now.”

As an agreement was reached yesterday in the wage dispute with the Polish air traffic controllers' union, there will be no conflict-related restrictions on air traffic to, from and over Poland at the weekend or in the coming days and weeks. Accordingly, LOT Polish Airlines maintains its entire flight schedule and plans to operate all flights.

This also means that all flights from India to Poland as well as all onward connecting flights from the airline‘s Star Alliance hub in Warsaw to destinations across Europe and North America are operated.

Amit Ray, Director India LOT Polish Airlines: "We are very pleased that an agreement was reached in time and that our passengers will be able to make their planned journeys without restrictions.”

Airports Authority of India (AAI) successfully conducted at Kishangarh Airport, Rajasthan light trial using GAGAN (GPS Aided GEO Augmented Navigation) based LPV Approach Procedures. The successful trial is a great achievement and major milestone in field of Air Navigation Services (ANS) in the history of Indian Civil Aviation Sector. India is the first country in Asia Pacific Region to achieve such a landmark.

LPV (Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance) permits aircraft guided approaches that are operationally nearly equivalent to Cat-IILS, without the need for ground-based navigational infrastructure. The service relies on the availability of GPS and GAGAN Geo Stationary Satellites (GSAT-8, GSAT-10 and GSAT-15), launched by ISRO.

GAGAN is an Indian Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) jointly developed by AAI and ISRO. It is the first such system developed for India and neighboring countries in the equatorial region. GAGAN System was certified by DGCA in 2015 for Approach with Vertical Guidance (APV 1) and en-route (RNP 0.1) operations. There are only four Space-Based augmentation systems available in the world namely India (GAGAN), US(WAAS) Europe (EGNOS) and Japan (MSAS). GAGAN is the first such system developed for India and neighboring countries in the equatorial region.

Indigo Airlines using its ATR aircraft has flown an Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP) with LPV minima of 250ft, using GAGAN Service. The tests at Kishangarh Airport were performed as part of initial GAGAN LPV flight trials along with DGCA team on- board. After the final approval by DGCA, the procedure will be available for usage of commercial flights.

LPV is a Satellite Based Procedure which has been used by the aircraft for landing purpose today at Kishangarh Airport (Rajasthan). LPV approaches will make it possible to land at airportsnot equipped with expensive Instrument Landing Systems, which includes many small regional and local airports. Lowering the decision height up to 250 ft provides a substantial operational benefit in poor weather and low visibility conditions. Thus, any airport which hitherto would require higher visibility minima, will be able to accept aircraft benefitting remote airports which are devoid of precision approach capability equipment.

Number of airports including airports under Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) are being surveyed for development of GAGAN based LPV Instrument Approach Procedures so that suitably equipped aircraft can derive maximum benefit in terms of improved safety during landing, reduction in fuel consumption, reduction in delays, diversions and cancellations etc.
