Taken from an article in the Fiji Times.
Air Terminal Services (Fiji) Limited (ATS) has purchased F$700,000 worth of state-of-the-art aircraft loading equipment for Nadi International Airport in anticipation of the continued growth in tourism.
ATS CEO, Alifereti Malo, said that the country had experienced record numbers of visitors over the past five years and that all indications are that the number would continue to grow.
Aircraft arrivals and departures at Nadi International Airport have increased by 1,000 flights over the past five years from 3,293 flights in 2002 to 4,596 flights in 2005.
ATS services all international, regional aircraft and corporate jets that uses Nadi International Airport. It recognises its responsibility to provide engineering expertise, catering, aircraft cleaning, passenger handling as well as cargo and baggage control and realises the need to continue to update its equipment and services.
The recent equipment purchased is a Mobile Passenger Steps that will be used for boarding and disembarking passengers for aircrafts as big as Boeing 747s. This is in addition to the four that the company already has.
In addition, the company now has a Joint Cargo Pallet Loader that can also service aircrafts as large as the Boeing 747s. The Joint Cargo Pallet Loader significantly increases the amount of cargo that can be loaded and unloaded from an aircraft making the process faster and more efficient. The new loader adds to eleven already in operation.
