Air Fiji is Fiji's longest serving domestic carrier, having started operations in 1967. In 1997 the airline expanded significantly by doubling its fleet. In doing so Air Fiji is now Fiji's largest and premier domestic carrier operating a fleet of eleven aircraft with a total of one hundred and fifty-four available seats. In terms of fleet age, the airline has the youngest domestic fleet serving 15 exotic island destinations with an average of 65 flights daily. Air Fiji's network of services in the Fiji Islands is comprehensive, carrying an average of 140,000 passengers annually.

Air Fiji serves the needs of thousands of visitors to our shores every year - evident by the large number of International Wholesalers who use Air Fiji as their preferred domestic carrier.
Operated by a dedicated team of highly qualified pilots and engineers, the airline boasts a full complement of 200 staff. Our engineering team is highly respected in the South Pacific region, and as such, services other local and regional operators.
Air Fiji offers three International Travel Centres located at Suva, Nadi and Labasa. These Centres offer a full range of travel needs and professional travel consultancy services. Clients include the United Nations and The University of the South Pacific. To first time visitors, a meet and greet service is offered at Nadi International Airport provided the request is received prior to arrival.


On the 27th September 1999 Air Fiji's new Regional Service "Pacific Link" was inaugurated with our first EMB Brasilia service between Fiji and Tuvalu. Again on the 16th November 1999, Pacific Link "stretched its wings" and launched a new thrice weekly service between Nausori (Suva) and Tonga (Nukualofa).
These were indeed large steps forwarded for Air Fiji, which for thirty two years had primarily provided domestic services within the Fiji Islands, with the occasional regional charter.
Utilising a modern Jet Turboprop, the thirty seater Embraer Brasilia 120ER Advanced, Pacific Link soon gained popularity on its regional services as well as domestically, due to the convenient timetable and services departing from Suva.

Pacific Link provided a vital international link for the Island Nation of Tuvalu which is serviced with an average of three services a week. In fact, Pacific Link is the only airline providing the critical service between Fiji and Tuvalu.
The EMB Brasilia 120ER is available for regional charters and has provided these services to many of the South and Mid Pacific Islands.

· 1 x 30 seater Embraer Brasilia (EM2)
· 3 x 15 seater Embraer Bandeirantes (EMB)
· 1 x 19 seater DHC Twin Otters (DHT)

Air Fiji recently celebrated 35 years of service to the Fiji Islands, and more recently to our neighbours, Tuvalu and Tonga, serviced by our comfortable and sleek thirty seater aircraft the Embraer Brasilia, and the service is aptly called the Pacific link.
