About Air Pacific: Founded in 1951, Air Pacific is the national airline of Fiji. It aims to become the airline of choice of the South Pacific, and the purchase and introduction of three new re-branded "Fiji Airways" Airbus A330-200s to replace its fleet of Boeing B747-400s and B767s will be the capstone of the airline's success and turnaround from record losses just 3 years ago. From its hub at Nadi International Airport, Air Pacific and its subsidiary Pacific Sun fly to 15 cities in 10 countries. Destinations include Australia, New Zealand, USA, Hong Kong, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Vanuatu, and Solomon Islands. Air Pacific aircraft bring in over 64 percent of all visitors who fly to Fiji, and the two companies together employ over 900 employees, earn revenues of over F$675 million ( $380m USD), and directly contribute a significant portion of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Air Pacific is scheduled to fly as 'Fiji Airways' in 2013. Visit www.fijiairways.com for more information.
