About Pacific Island Air
Pacific Island Air, Helicopters (Fiji) and Vanuatu Helicopters are privately owned by John Currie and family .
Their company Garden City Helicopters is widely respected as one of New Zealand's premier helicopter and aviation operators, servicing all aspects of tourism and charter flights, air ambulance and rescue operations plus commercial flying services as well as further expansion into fixed-wing aircraft charter operations.
Garden City Helicopters saw an opportunity in 2013 to purchase the established Pacific Island Air & Seaplanes operation which had been successfully operating in Fiji for 14 years and add helicopters to the company’s fleet of fixed-wing aircraft with the aim of offering a premier tourism flightseeing and air charter operation to the region.
Today the operation in Fiji is marketed under one brand - Pacific Island Air. This enables clients to book with one operator who can deliver all three modes of air transfer: Charter airplanes, seaplanes and helicopters.
The company currently operates two 6-passenger twin engine Squirrel helicopters, two 6-passenger Beaver seaplanes, two 10-passenger Otter seaplanes and two twin-engine Islander planes seating 6 passengers.
Pacific Island Air has the flexibility and capability of flying to any destination in Fiji. Passengers can fly by seaplane one way and return by helicopter, offering two distinctly different experiences from one operator.
Our company is based at Nadi Airport with a check-in desk situated at the domestic terminal. You can also find us at our operations base in the Denarau Marina.
Our aim is to get our passengers as quickly and efficiently as possible to the destination of their choice.
While a large part of our business involves transfer flights to resorts and islands, we also offer scenic flights, private charters, adventure packages in association with other tourist operators in Fiji and Medivac Emergency Services.
