Q:

How can air be a fluid if it's a gas? Aren't fluids liquid?

A:

While liquids are fluids, fluids are not necessarily liquids! Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gasses, and plasmas. These are all fluids because they do not have a definite shape and instead take the shape of their container.
