Air Pacific managing director and chief executive Dave Pflieger will leave the airline to return to the US, with the search underway for a replacement.

During the three years with Pflieger at the helm, Fiji's national carrier returned to profitability, turning in a profit of FJ$16 million in the last financial year. He has also overseen the airline's rebranding as Fiji Airways.

Chairman Nalin Patel credited Pflieger with "one of the most remarkable turnarounds in the airline industry".

"Thnaks to his incredible vision, drive and leadership, Air Pacific is now again profitable and extremely well-positioned for future growth and success," he said.

Meanwhile, Pflieger said the time "is right" for him to hand over the reigns and pursue other opportunities.

"It is clear that the company now has a proven track record of success and an exciting future ahead," he said.

He confirmed he will assist with the transition to a new chief executive.
