Fiji Airways Air Pacific Limited, trading as Fiji Airways (and formerly as Air Pacific), is the flag carrier airline of Fiji. It is based in Nadi and operates international and domestic services to 10 countries and 17 cities around the Pacific Ocean, including Oceania, the United States, Hong Kong and Singapore. Fiji Airways annually transports almost two-thirds of the visitors to the country. The Fiji government owns 52% of the airline and Qantas 46%, with the governments of several Pacific island nations holding the remainder. The airline plans to replace five of its older Boeing 737s with Boeing's newest 737 MAX 8s upon delivery in 2018, at a cost of about US$110 million each. Two of the new Boeings are scheduled to arrive in 2018, and the remainder the following year. The planes are intended for Fiji Airways' regional services to Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu.
