National airline Fiji Airways has been recognised for the second time by global record breaking authority — Guinness World Records.

Following its accolade for the Highest Altitude Wedding on an Aeroplane award last year, the airline has been shortlisted in the inaugural Guinness World Records Festival of Media Awards.

In a statement, the airline revealed it was in the running for the "Record-Breaking Brand Award" in the premier Festival of Media Asia Pacific Awards in March.

"Fiji Airways has been judged to be among the brands which are 'using the power of record-breaking achievements for impactful, creative and innovative global campaigns'," the airline said.

"For the shortlist, finalists were selected by Festival of Media Asia Pacific judges and the winner will be selected by the industry through a public vote."

Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Stefan Pichler said the airline was proud to have been chosen as a finalist for the inaugural award. Voting closes on March 6 and a winner announced on March 18.

For its record-breaking award completed in August last year, the airline launched the unique mid-air-weddings campaign to celebrate its rebranding from Air Pacific.

Five New Zealand couples were married aboard an A330 which reached an altitude of 41,000feet to complete the record.
