Nauru Airlines is the national carrier of the Republic of Nauru, operating passenger and freighter services to and from the Central Pacific.

The operations of Nauru Airlines were originally undertaken by the Republic of Nauru within the government Department of Island Development and Industry. It operated under a Nauruan Air Operators Certificate and was administered from Nauru.

We have been operating under the Australian civil aviation regulations and with an Australian Air Operators Certificate since 1996. Our pilots and engineers are trained to the Australian standards and likewise the maintenance of our aircraft is carried out by respected Australian maintenance providers. This ensures we operate to one of the highest safety standards anywhere in the World.
