Air Kiribati is the national airline of Kiribati operating passenger services within the Gilbert Islands of Kiribati, and to Fiji. It also operates charters, medical evacuation and search and rescue services. Its main base is Bonriki International Airport, Tarawa Atoll. Until 2008, it was the only airline to operate Kiribati domestic routes. The airline was established and started ops on 1 April 1995, after the collapse of the previous national airline Air Tungaru, which had been formed on 31 October 1977. In March 2004, Air Kiribati ended its international ops. It is owned 100% by the government of Kiribati.
