Very professional and comfortable, felt completely safe, beautiful views of the islands with a commentary from our captain. Would definitely recommend PIA and would def take the seaplane again in future.

The flight was easy, 30 minutes to Paradise Cove. Great sightseeing on the way in and I sat in the front and talked with Cam whom was a great host and shared a lot about Fiji.

We expected this to be a short commuter-like flight. However, the Pacific Island Air pilot gave us a crisply interesting commentary on the seascape and surrounding islands. The flight was on time, and ground staff in Nadi Airport were welcoming and efficient.More

Hi Ranyi, We've just gotten back from Fiji and had very much the same level of issues you are. For what should have been a fairly simple transfer - Just trying to arrange that I had to send over 30 emails before we left... More

Hi All, Looking to book with PIA in September but I've been trying to get the answer to a few questions but with the time difference of 12 hours process is slow and some of the questions I've asked have been missed adding to the delay so figured I'd reach out :) We are staying on the mainline for about a week and the Westin and then looking to take a combo flight out to Tokoriki island resort I understand the helicopter has a luggage allowance of 15kg pp which given we are on a 2 week holiday we will of course have more than 15kg to travel with. So my current questions are: Are we able to take one bag of 30kg and leave the remaining luggage with PIA - And is it secure? Do PIA offer a free transfer from Westin resort to the departure? Where does the seaplane land on it's return and from there how would we get back to collect our bag? and lastly Where are PIA based as once we land back we'll need to head to Nadi international airport Many Thanks Ryan
