Nauru’s national airline has unveiled its new freighter aircraft which makes Australian aviation history. It is the first of its kind in Australia and is located in the Brisbane Airport hangar.

A testament to the consistent growth and expansion of the company over the years, the airline is delighted to welcome the first new-generation Boeing 737-800F to its fleet.

The President of the Republic of Nauru, His Excellency, Russ Kun said he was thrilled that Nauru Airlines can be a part of Australia’s aviation history, owning the first B737-800 freighter in Australia, and one that can transport over 23.9t of cargo with a range of kms.

To celebrate this achievement, Nauru Airlines will invite clients, industry partners, staff, and members of the Nauruan community to two special events during the first weekend of August.

The President of the Republic of Nauru, His Excellency, Russ Kun will be in attendance with First Lady, Madame Kun, alongside the Government of Nauru ministers, Board Members, and distinguished stakeholders.

Dr Kieren Keke, the Chairman of the Board of Nauru Airlines noted that “these events will be a moment of celebration as it marks new beginnings, while also enabling partners and clients to physically see the new opportunities we can provide.”

“The 737-800F expands the operational capabilities of our service, adding to our two existing B737-300 freighter aircraft and our growing fleet of passenger aircraft, making sure we can service the needs of Nauru and the central Pacific, as well as our valued clients in Australia and across the broader region.”

While headquartered in Nauru, Nauru Airline’s operations have been based in Brisbane for 20 years, registered under Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority and operating to Australia’s highest aviation standards.
