The Air Taxi Crew

MelianaMeliana Samuel

Bookings Co-ordinator & Office Manager

Meliana is the first point of contact for all customer enquiries. As well as ensuring all reservation enquiries and processing, she likes to personally check-in everyone for their flight and generally keep the lives of the rest of the team in order. Mili is originally from the island of Malekula but has lived in Port Vila for most of her adult life. She is fluent in 3 languages, including English and of course the local language Bislama. A tireless workaholic, she is the glue that binds Air Taxi together, an integral part of the team.


BrianBrian Johnstone

Chief Engineer & Maintenance Controller

Brian has been involved in aviation from an early age. Together with his wife Jules, he owns and operates an aircraft engineering facility at Port Vila Airport, Airworx Engineering Ltd. Airworx Engineering, through its aircraft leasing arm, own a number of the aircraft operated by Air Taxi. This puts Air Taxi in the unique position of having its own, dedicated aircraft engineering facility, providing the highest levels of maintenance to the Air Taxi fleet. Airworx also provides commercial jet maintenance services to Air New Zealand, Virgin, Air Fiji, Solomon Airways and Air Calin.

Possessed with the patience of a saint, for BJ, nothing is ever a problem.
