The Island of Naury is getting it's own airline again.

Great scheme on this baby, kind of an odd name though.

Sorry, but this is not the newest thing. It was hot about a month ago...

Our Airline replace Air Nauru. The aircraft (VH-INU, 23684/1353, former N323AW) is the only aircraft of this start-up airline.

I hadn't heard this before - thanks for posting it. Yes, very nice colours - yes, stupid name.

I just hope they can make more of a go of this one than the original incarnation. Why these smaller Pacific Islands can't team up and get a joint airline going is beyond me. A couple of 737s thrown in with some Dash 8s/ATRs for inter-island flights would be perfect IMHO.

The problem with a 1 737 operation is what happens when the aircraft goes tech? Chaos, unless there's some kind of an agreement with QF or the like for emergencies like that. But then a 2 aircraft fleet is usually too big. Most islands I'd say need about 1.5 aircraft, which is why a joint operation should be seriously considered.

My rant...done  Smile

Our Airline??? Well the name is original...

As for the SoWePac getting a regional airline... absofrickinlutely agreed!!! Problem would be getting each small republic and monarchy etc etc to agree on what plane goes where. LOTS of politics... bad for airline management.

Hi MIAMIx707,

I've found the same picture on A.net. As you've used a link to a picture of "the competition", don't be surprised if your thread is deleted.....

Cheers.

Thanks for letting me know. But it would be a.net's fault for not putting it on the home page news (it wouldn't be the first time either)

Interestingly there are quite a few of these tiny pacific Island nations with their own airlines such as:

Air Nauru
Air Caledonie
Air Vanuatu
Air Austral

In the past, there have been Air Kiribati, Air Tungaru. and probably a few others.

Nauru would be better off contracting Air Pacific to provide a once or twice weekly NAN-INU-BNE (or MEL) service with a possible GUM stop thrown in.

Let's hope this airline stays solvent and won't have this fine 733 held by Aussies again...

Its good to see Nauru finally getting air links again. Maybe not a good idea with its own airline thou, with the country in its current state

Indeed, although those are more common airlines, except for maybe Air Rarotonga and Solomons.

Another one was Royal Tongan, but that one is history.

I loved Solomon Airlines' paintscheme, I guess they're not around anymore either.

Like as others have said, many Pacific nations can't support their own airlines.

As well as Air Nauru going bust due to debts etc, Royal Tongan tried the 757 and in my opinion it was too big for their loads so the went bust too.

I agree with the smaller nations getting together and forming an airline between them.

PH stopped all International services and DJ and the Somoan government formed a joint venture with DJ taking over some of PHs International services. PH still flys domestic services

They could join the Polynesian Blue joint venture, but would the cause an issue if islands from Micronesia of Melanesia were to join?

Air Pacific is backed by Qantas and Air Caledonie and Air Tahiti Nui are probably getting some kind of assistance from France. But all three have much higher loads due to stronger tourism.

I already mentioned Air Kiribati, and Air Marshall islands is not all that exotic, as they were or still are a US overseas territory, but you're right, it's a perfect example.

Too bad for you spotters down under I imagine. Somoe of these colorful ane exotic airlines are gone, or have adopted boring liveries (Air Pacific).
