Fiji Airlines Limited, trading as Pacifc Sun is an airline headquartered at Nadi International Airportmarker in Nadimarker, Fijimarker. It operates services to ten destinations within the Fijian Islands as well as regionally within the Pacific Islands. They are a wholly owned subsidiary of Fiji's International carrier Air Pacific.

History

Don Collingwood, a pilot and businessman, founded what became Pacific Sun in 1980, under the name Sunflower Airlines, which later changed to Sun Air. It began with a single Britten Norman BN2 Islander aircraft, flying the Nadi-Taveunimarker route. By January 2007, its fleet had grown to 12 aircraft, and the company employed nearly 140 staff. On 31 January 2007 Sun Air was handed over to current parent company Air Pacific, which had to fight off legal challenge by rival domestic carrier Air Fiji against the handover.
