Our Vision: To be the world’s leading small airport and ATM service provider whilst projecting our heritage.
Our Mission: To ensure world-class airports and air traffic management facilities and services in the Fiji islands that are managed in a safe, secure and efficient manner, and that meet International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards, exceed customer expectations and provide a fair return on shareholders' funds.
Our Values: These core values are equally important in the pursuit of our corporate goals:
Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) owns and operates Nadi International Airport and manages Nausori International Airport and 13 other domestic outer island airports on behalf of the government.
AFL also provides air traffic management (ATM) services in the Nadi Flight Information Region. This includes the air spaces of Fiji, Tuvalu, New Caledonia, Kiribati and Vanuatu covering a 6 million square kilometer area.
Airports Fiji Limited (AFL) is a fully owned Government Commercial Company that was established on 12 April 1999. It was formed following the reorganization of the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji (CAAF).
The company reports to the Attorney General and Minister for Finance, Public Enterprises, Civil Aviation, Public Service & Communications for its commercial performance and Civil Aviation for policy matters.
AFL serves 26 regional and international airlines and connects Fiji to 23 cities in the region and internationally.

Aviation and airport industry.
AFL’s headquarters is located at the AFL compound in Namaka, Nadi.
AFL as a Government Commercial Company is one of the best performing state-owned enterprises. This year AFL gave an unprecedented dividend pay-out of $15m ($7.5m for 2014 and $7.5m for the first half of 2015) to the government. This is the highest ever dividend declared by a state-owned enterprise. The result is particularly exceptional as AFL is simultaneously undertaking major capital upgrade works at significant costs. Our record-breaking financial performance each year is due to our revenue restructure, which is expected to increase from $60m to $120m by 2017.

It’s not only about having a modern airport but also to create an experience for our passengers that will be remembered as one of the best in our part of the world.
Next year when the Nadi Airport Terminal Modernization Project (NATMP) will be completed, Fiji will proudly boast having one of the South Pacific’s most integral airport facility reflecting our position as the regional hub.
Aviation plays a crucial role in our economy and supports the tourism industry therefore by having a brand new and modern airport it will complement our image as a top tourist destination.
