Air Pacific Limited, trading as Fiji Airways is the flag carrier airline of Fiji. The airline operates international and domestic services to 10 countries and 17 cities around the Pacific Ocean, including Oceania, United States and Hong Kong. Fiji Airways annually transports almost two-thirds of the visitors to the country. The Fiji government owns 52% of the airline and Qantas 46% with the governments of several Pacific Island nations holding the remainder.
Origins and Ownership
The airline was founded by Australian aviator: Harold Gatty, who in 1931 had been the navigator on a record-breaking round-the-world flight with Wiley Post. Gatty moved to Fiji after the second World War and registered the airline in 1947 as Katafanga Estates Ltd., Gatty renamed the airline as Fiji Airways in September 1951. After being acquired by Qantas in 1958, Katafanga Estates was retooled as a regional airline and renamed Air Pacific. In May 2012, the airline announced that it would reintroduced the name: Fiji Airways to reinforce its role as the national airline of Fiji.
What people are saying
I’ve been reading a lot of reviews lately, regarding the services and offers that the airline provides, and I think it’s safe to say that Fiji Airways provides good services towards their passengers. Given the fact that they have comfortable seats ready for every cabin classes, the warm hospitality of their staff is far more appreciating especially how they assist their customers, when it comes with their concerns. Here are some of the reviews that I’ve read and gathered:

“The flight was 11 hours but comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous & friendly. They served 2 meals and complimentary cocktails. Since the flight was long, passengers were encouraged to get up and walk in the aisle. Each seat had it’s own TV with tons of movies and other options.”
