Air New Zealand Cargo walked away with Service Exporter of the Year Award during the 2012 Prime Minister's Exporter of the Year Awards last night in Sigatoka.

The award, the first for the airline that has been in operating in Fiji quite some time, came as one exporter complained of a lack of cargo space at times on national airline Air Pacific.

Blair Gourdie, the regional manager, NZ and Pacific Islands international cargo sales, was overjoyed and dedicated the achievement to his crew.

"We have one of the experienced and most professional cargo sales team in the Pacific region and this award is an excellent recognition of our work and commitment," he said.

“We have been serving Fiji for quite some time now and it truly feels great to be rewarded by the Fijian government for our work.”

Gourdie said the airline will continue to strive for excellence and will change with time to keep its services up to date.

He said Fiji’s service sector has a lot of potential and with tourism being the main exporter, all businesses linked to it can diversify and become efficient through the provision of excellent, friendly and timely services to tourists and locals.
