Nauru

Coral pinnacles lend an eeriness to the landscape of Nauru, the airline's home base. They are the legacy of a century of mining rich phosphate deposits which are now almost depleted. In 1798, the english explorer, Captain John Fearn presumed to name Nauru "Pleasant Island". Nauru was the leader in opening up the glories of the Central Pacific to travellers by estabilshing the region's first modern international airline.
