Fiji's National Provident Fund is helping to bank roll the purchase of Airbus aircraft for Air Pacific.

The government in Suva has just secured a loan from two German aviation banks to meet the majority of the $600 million investment.

It's unknown what effect the interest on the loans will have on the profitability of the airline soon to be rebadged as Fiji Airways.
