Fiji Airways has begun relocating its fleet ahead of Cyclone Yasa, which was upgraded to a category 5 storm on Wednesday morning (NZST) and is on track to make a direct hit on Fiji later this week.
Some of the planes are on their way to New Zealand.
A number of Fiji Airways aircraft took off from Nadi enroute for Sydney on Wednesday afternoon, including the airline's flagship Airbus A350s.
"All Fiji Airways jet aircraft - Airbus A350s Airbus A330s and Boeing 737s - aircraft will either operate their scheduled freight or repatriation services to Sydney, Auckland, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, or be ferried to Sydney or Auckland over the next two days," the airline said in a statement.
"These aircraft will remain at those ports until weather conditions in Fiji allow for their safe return."
The airline said its smaller aircraft - ATR 72s, ATR 42 and Twin Otters - will be secured inside its Hangar facilities in Nadi.
On Wednesday, Cyclone Yasa had sustained winds of 200km/h, with gusts reaching 270km/h.
