Our work in the South Pacific

double triangles_orange

Supporting the growth of Pacific aviation

The South Pacific consists of six flight information regions (FIRs), operated by four key air navigation service providers (ANSPs). As part of this group, Airways is committed to working closely and collaboratively with the region’s aviation regulators and operators to achieve the International Civil Aviation Organization’s vision of strong industry partnerships in the South Pacific region.

Supporting the development and improvement of air navigation services, we have a long history and depth of experience working in the South Pacific. Our experience spans from Papua New Guinea to French Polynesia, and encompasses most of the islands in between.

Airways manages the upper airspace across the Auckland Oceanic Flight Information Region, which includes Tonga, Samoa, Niue
and the Cook Islands, using our Oceanic Control System.

We provide ICAO compliant, independent flight inspection services to our customers in the Pacific. Our specialists are experts in calibrating radio and visual navigation aids and radar systems, and in validating instrument flight procedures. Our inspection engineers are also navigation aid experts, meaning they can add plenty of value to your business.

We also work closely with funding and industry bodies such as the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), the World Bank, the Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO) and the Association of South Pacific Airlines (ASPA) to assist the development of aviation across the South Pacific.
