The civil aviation industry in the South Pacific is experiencing a period of rapid change. A turning point for the industry has arrived in the form of new generation, long range aircraft used by Pacific Rim airlines. These aircraft have the propensity to overfly the South Pacific. This means reduced access to stop-over traffic for the small South Pacific nations who have traditionally relied on business associated with stop-over tourism. A consequence of over-flying the South Pacific is an increasing dependence on national flag carriers to provide island dedicated services. The focus of the thesis is on the ability of the South Pacific civil aviation industry to adopt forward planning measures and co-operative resource sharing. A professional approach to co-operation between tourism and civil aviation organisations will be critical for tourism development.
