Air Pacific Limited, doing business as Fiji Airways, formerly Air Pacific, is the flag carrier airline of Fiji. It operates international and domestic services to 10 countries and 15 cities around the Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand, North America and Hong Kong. It is also a partner with the frequent flyer programmes of Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, and Qantas.
Fiji’s national airline was established and started operations in 1951. It was founded by Australian aviator Harold Gatty, a world-famous navigator, who was given a ticker-tape parade in New York City in 1931 for his round-the-world flight with Wiley Post. The company started as Katafanga Estates because it operated to Gatty’s island in Fiji with the same name. It later operated as Fiji Airways until 1971, and was originally headquartered on the grounds of Nausori Airport in Suva. Fiji Airways is owned by the Fijian government (51%), the Australian flag-carrier Qantas (46.32%), and Air New Zealand and the governments of Kiribati, Tonga, Nauru and Samoa each hold minor stakes. En mayo 2012, the airline announced that it would revert to its original name of Fiji Airways, with rebranding to coincide with the delivery of the A330 aircraft in 2013. Fiji Airways’ new brandmark, un “Masi symbol that epitomises Fiji and enhances the new name of Fiji’s national carrier” was announced on August 17, 2012. The airline’s new brand identity and colour scheme were fully revealed on October 10, 2012, in conjunction with Fiji Day. The official launch of the new brand took place on June 26, 2013, under Chairman Nalin Patel and Acting CEO Aubrey Swift. By this point, two A330 aircraft had been delivered, and two of four 737 aircraft had received refreshed interiors and new Fiji Airways paint.
Fiji Airways offer two types of classes on their international services, Pacific Voyager (Economía) and Tabua (Negocio).
