Q&A with Alison of Pacific Island Air
Tell us a little about your background?
Pacific Island Air is privately owned by John Currie and family. Their parent company Garden City Helicopters is widely respected as one of New Zealand’s premier helicopter and aviation operators, servicing all aspects of tourism and charter flights, air ambulance and rescue operations plus commercial flying services as well as further expansion into fixed-wing aircraft charter operations.
Garden City Helicopters saw an opportunity in 2013 to purchase the established Pacific Island Air & Seaplanes operation which had been successfully operating in Fiji for 14 years and add helicopters to the company’s fleet of fixed-wing aircraft with the aim of offering a premier tourism flightseeing and air charter operation to the region.
Today the operation in Fiji is marketed under one brand – Pacific Island Air. This enables clients to book with one operator who can deliver all three modes of air transfer: Charter airplanes, seaplanes and helicopters.
What do you offer Brides & Grooms?
We offer the wow factor for brides and grooms wanting to arrive at their reception or wedding by helicopter or seaplane. We can also cater for those spectacular photo opportunites allowing you to go places that would otherwise be impossible or take too long. We also have a private island day trip package where you could organize to hold the wedding, propose, book it out for a special wedding party day out or for something extra special on your honeymoon.
What do you enjoy the most about what you do?
We just love to blow our clients away by creating magic memories that will last a life time. And just a little something to brag about to family and friends!
Your favourite tour group so far and why?
We recently had a guy who wanted to propose to his bride to be at our private island. We had to get to the island earlier to write on the sand “marry me” so when we flew close to the island the bride looked down and burst into tears. It was a very magical moment for everyone.
Top tip for Bride & Grooms planning a Day Trip?
