Fiji's newly refubished international airport terminal in Nadi has been officially opened.
FBC News reported the $US63 million upgrade includes new car park facilities, expanded departure, immigration and customs areas and a non-denominational prayer room.
The prime minister Frank Bainimarama, who opened the new terminal, said it would support the growth of tourism in Fiji to becoming a $US1.07 billion industry by 2021.
He said it was the first complete makeover since the 1950s.
Passenger arrivals surpassed two million last year and he said Fiji was on track to record even more visitors this year.
