Air Vanuatu was formed over 20 years ago in December 1987, the airline has served Vanuatu proudly, bringing visitors and residents to and from these beautiful islands.

Air Vanuatu has played a major role in establishing Vanuatu as a tourist and investment destination in the last 20 years, particularly in it's closest markets, Australia and New Zealand, and will continue to do so in the future.

It was in 1987 Air Vanuatu began its proud history flying a chartered Boeing 737-200 to Sydney and then onto Brisbane and Melbourne. In 1989 Air Vanuatu purchased it's first aircraft a 727-200, which was named the "Spirit of Vanuatu".

New Zealand was added to the schedule with a weekly flight to Auckland and a series of code share flights began with Solomon Airlines to Fiji and Air Caledonie to Noumea.

Air Vanuatu today operates a new next generation Boeing 737-800 on its international services to and from Australia, New Zealand and Vanuatu. The launch of a new aircraft livery on the 737-800 captures the true essence of the Vanuatu islands - the sea, sand, mountains and volcano.

In early 2009 the arrival of 3 new Y-12 aircraft were added to the domestic fleet and in July Air Vanuatu will introduce a new ATR - 72 regional aircraft. This plane will operate around the larger islands of Vanuatu and regional South West Pacific destinations offering new levels of comfort. After the arrival of ATR - 72 Air Vanuatu will have the latest and youngest new generation aircraft in the South West Pacific.
