Asperic Airways is the flag carrier of Tavauru and is wholly owned by the Government of Tavauru. Asperic Airways was formed on 9 December 2004 in response to the collapse of Tavauru Airlines which left the nation without an airline. The airline's hub and headquarters are at Tauantua International Airport, from where it operates scheduled services to Uletha, Tarephia and Archanta. The geographical position of Tavauru is convenient for one-stop transasperic flights, which is one of the major business focuses for the airline.


Collapse of Tavauru Airlines and founding

From 1965 to 2004, Tavauru's flag carrier and largest airline had been Tavauru Airlines. From the mid 1990s, Tavauru Airlines had been plagued by financial issues, primarily due to mismanagement and corruption. In 2003 the airline began seeking investors to take over the company, however they did not manage to raise enough funds to secure the business. In July 2004 the Tavauruan Government announced it would inject $80m into the company in a bid to rescue it, however this did not work out and the company filed for liquidation on 29th October 2004, ceasing operations on the 17th November of the same year.

In response to this, the Tavauruan Government decided to form Asperic Airways, a wholly state owned replacement airline. Asperic Airways was formed on 9 December 2004, and began operations on 16 March 2005, with its maiden flight departing at 10:36am to Khaiwoon International Airport.
