Airways was founded by Richard Evanson in 1979, partly to transport
crew and material for the 1980 film, the "Blue Lagoon." The
popular movie, starring Brooke Shields, was filmed on Evanson's
privately-owned Turtle Island, an award-winning five-star resort
located in the Yasawa Islands. The short, scenic and convenient
flight to the island is just 30 minutes by air from Fiji's international
airport in Nadi, compared to up to nine hours by boat. (Despite
the similarity in names, Turtle Airways and Turtle Island are
separate companies and serve different, although complementary,
1982, Evanson sold 75% of Turtle Airways to South Seas Cruises,
in exchange for 25% of the cruise company. In 1998, however,
South Seas Cruises was sold to Fullers, a large publicly-traded
transport company based in New Zealand. This event gave Evanson,
an American multimillionaire expatriate now known for his tourism
and philanthropic activities in Fiji, an opportunity and incentive
to resume total ownership of the Fiji-based airline. He repurchased
Turtle Airways in July, 1998. Under Evanson's direction, future
plans include expanding the fleet, adding air service in Fiji
to other beach resorts, flying to new destinations not previously
served by the airline, improving access to the Coral Coast,
and reducing prices on some routes.
