The world’s largest aerospace company, Boeing, has partnered with the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways to be played at Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course from 2-5 August.

Now in its fifth year, the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways is proud to partner with a globally recognised brand in Boeing, further enhancing the tournament’s status on the world stage.

Boeing is no stranger to professional golf having been the naming rights sponsor for the Boeing Classic, a tournament on the PGA TOUR Champions and have supported the career of four-time Major Champion Ernie Els who will headline the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways alongside hometown hero Vijay Singh.

It’s the perfect partnership between Boeing and naming rights sponsor Fiji Airways whose fleet includes the 737-700, 737-800 and will soon be receiving the new 737 MAX.

“Boeing shares a long history with Fiji Airways and through our partnership, we are honored to become a sponsor for the Fiji International golf tournament,” said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Sales for Asia Pacific and India, The Boeing Company.

“Boeing has strived to become an active supporter of the global professional golfing community and we are pleased to be a part of this wonderful event.”

The Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways has been successful due to support from local Fijian companies over the last five years and Gavin Kirkman, CEO of the PGA of Australia which owns the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia, says the addition of Boeing to the tournament is a great boost.

“We’re very excited to welcome Boeing to the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways, they’ve been great supporters of professional golf with Ernie Els and tournaments around the world,” said Kirkman.

“To have an internationally respected brand on board will again help us showcase the spectacular destination of Fiji to audiences across the globe.”

Matt Porm, Director of Commercial for the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways says the Boeing partnership signifies how strong the tournament has grown in its five years.

“This new commercial partnership with Boeing shows the global strength of the tournament as we enter its fifth year,” said Porm.

“The Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways is continually growing the Fiji brand and showcasing the beauty and viability of Fiji from both a tourism and business perspective.

“The way in which Fiji Airways and Boeing have seized this opportunity to collaborate to promote the new fleet of 737-Max on the global platform of the tournament is a credit to all involved. It also showcases international best practices and we are excited to see this come to life now and well into the future.”
