Pacific Island Air is taking another step in its development in a bid to grow the company.

It will soon begin planning construction of a new hangar at the Nadi International Airport where the company is headquartered.

General Manager, Tuni Beddoes, said the company has already invested a lot into new planes, better engineering systems, extra staff and training systems.

“Our further investment plans for 2015 is to build a brand new hangar,” he said.

Pacific Island Air will not only undergo this construction but the company will be investing towards the growth of the company.

Some other projects include the extending of office space, further staff training and introduction of new equipment.

Since the entry of the new owners, Pacific Island Air has made it its mission to deliver the best service possible.

In the past two years, it introduced new helicopters to mix with the existing seaplanes and airplanes.

Mr Beddoes stated: “We are now in a situation where we can offer world class experiences and services.

“We have received tremendous support from the industry as a whole and are excited for the future.”

Tourism industry

Pacific Island Air believes the company’s growth is through the boom in the tourism industry which continues to grow.

“The industry needs to work together as a cohesive unit to take it to the next level,” Mr Beddoes said.

“Customers are more demanding than ever for efficient, reliable and top quality customer service, we need to get urgent with our customer service training and up skilling of the local workforce to achieve the next level.”


Currently Pacific Island Air has diversified its operation to Port Denarau by offering departures from a floating pontoon within the waterways of Port Denarau area.

Mr Beddoes said: “This initiative is to provide customers arriving or departing on launch services to or from tourism destinations.”

The initiative also supports movement of rotary aircraft on Super Yacht’s, resort transfers and medevac services required from the Port.
