Pioneer ocean advocate to highlight Fiji’s unique marine environment

2 January 2018: Fiji’s National Airline, Fiji Airways is pleased to announce an exciting partnership with explorer, environmentalist, and founder of Ocean Futures Society, Jean-Michel Cousteau as the newest addition to its suite of brand ambassadors.

It is a fitting partnership with the American ocean advocate who shares the same passion of marine and environmental conservation as the airline which operates in one of the most pristine natural environments in the world.

In his role as ambassador, Cousteau will work with Fiji Airways to highlight the importance of preserving marine environments and create awareness for more conscious environmental travel.

Fiji Airways Managing Director & CEO Andre Viljoen said: “As an airline that is intrinsically connected to our home, it’s in our interest to have partners who share our values. Jean-Michel is a great friend of Fiji and is a perfect fit for us to showcase the beauty of Fiji and highlight our fragile natural ecosystem.”

Jean-Michel Cousteau, President Ocean Futures Society said of his new role: "There is untold beauty and inspiration on our ocean planet. We can all make a difference – by protecting and conserving all life on our water planet, for us now, and for generations to come.  I am thrilled to partner with Fiji Airways and share with the rest of the world why Fiji is so special to me. With my team at Ocean Futures Society, we will continue our endless commitment to protect our water planet.  Our work is rewarded by the magic beauty and power of nature found in Fiji.” 

As part of the Fiji Airways Ambassadorship, Cousteau will also appear in Fiji Airways and Fiji Link marketing campaigns that highlight diving, snorkelling and other unique marine related experiences in Fiji.

He joins former National 7s Coach Ben Ryan, Fijian football star Roy Krishna, and National 7s Captain Jerry Tuwai who are already part of the Fiji Airways family.
