Previously known as Air Pacific, the airline rebranded to Fiji Airways in 2012. At the same time they went through a fleet upgrade and now operate modern Airbus and Boeing aircraft. The company also owns and operates Fiji Link (previously Pacific Sun) which flies domestic routes in Fiji and to some small neighbouring island countries. > VIEW HOT FIJI AIRWAYS DEALS HERE THE ESSENTIALS Name: Fiji Airways.
