Air Nauru



WHEN an island nation suffers from an overwhelming geographical isolation, with the traditional form of transport by ship, it needs to establish a modern and efficient transport system. This is the story of the Republic of Nauru, an island nation 166 degrees 55 minutes east longitude and 0 degrees 55 minutes latitude, or some 32 miles south of the equator. The island is an uplifted coral formation of some 21 sq. km, with a circumference of 19.3 km. Nauru is home to one of the smallest nations on earth, with just 11,000 people and the legacy of a century of mining rich phosphate deposits.
