Air Vanuatu contemplate expanding B737 fleet

CEO and Managing Director of Air Vanuatu has revealed the airline is thinking about growing out its B737 fleet next year. Initial ideas include dry-leasing either a B737-800 or a B737-700 on a contract of at least five years for mid-2019. Joseph Laloyer has said that the jet would expand Air Vanuatu's network, increasing the amount of times that they fly existing routes, while also looking to fly to new routes in Australia and the surrounding area.


The airlines fleet currently consists of one existing B737-800, one ATR72-500, one ATR72-600, three DHC-6-300s, and two Islander aircrafts. With the new B737, Laloyer highlighted Melbourne Tullamarine as a potential destination they will look to fly to.

Founder of Air Vanuatu attempts to set up new airline

Four months ago, Bill Ravel, a New Caledonia-based businessman lodged an application to set up a new airline, called Islands, to compete against Air Tahiti. The new company has told Tahiti-infos that it has received no official reply and now wants the court to formalise the apparent rejection. It also said that there was no legal obstacle to be issued a license. Mr Ravel, who founded Air Calin and Air Vanuatu, wants to use Embraer aircraft to fly to the territory's five archipelagos, undercutting Air Tahiti's fares by 15 to 20 percent. He also said the plan was also to fly to the Cook Islands twice a week and to Samoa three times a week. Last year, transport minister Luc Faatau said he feared the new airline would only fly to the most lucrative destinations, such as Bora Bora. He said additional taxes may then have to be levied to sustain unprofitable flights operated by Air Tahiti to many of the 40 smaller islands.
