Fiji Airways is an international airline of the Fischi Islands. It is based in Nadi and is based at Nadi Airport. Already in 1947, the airline was founded by Harold Gatty under the name Katafanga Estates Limited. Since September 1951, scheduled domestic flights called Fiji Airways have been started. In July of 1971, however, changed the name in Air Pacific, as Fiji Air Services ceded this name to the company. In 1974, the first international flights to Auckland, New Zealand were offered. A year later followed flights to Brisbane, via Noumea, New Caledonia. In 1983, a McDonnel Douglas DC-10 was flown to Honolulu for the first time. In 1985, Quantas then joined Air Pacific with a management stake and increased its stake to 46.05 percent. By contrast, the state of Fiji still holds 51 percent of the airline. 1.94 percent include Air New Zealand and 0.74 percent the states of Kiribati, Samoa, Tonga and Nauru. The first Boeing 737-700 received the airline in September 1998, the first Boeing 737-800 in May 1999. In April of 2011, an order for eight Boeing 787-8 was canceled due to delivery delays. Instead, three Airbus A330-200s were ordered in October 2011. The background was the modernization of the long-haul fleet. Since June 27, 2013, the airline is again called Fiji Airways. At the same time, a completely new corporate design was introduced. Currently, the company flies from its home base to various international destinations. These include, for example, Sydney, Christchurch, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, USA, Honolulu and Port Vila. As of August 2014, Fiji Airways has a fleet of 12 aircraft with an average age of 7.5 years. It consists of three Airbus A330-200s, one Boeing 737-700 and three Boeing 737-800s. Currently two Boeing 737-800s are ordered. In addition, Fiji Airways offers the frequent flyer program Tabua Club.
