Flying in Comfort & Style

Published December 1, 2017 in NEWS

Our air charter services make travel to Wakatobi more comfortable and convenient than ever before.

The beginning of a long-awaited vacation puts most of us in a mood of happy anticipation that can survive airport layovers, security lines, and time zone changes. This is especially true when you are on your way to Wakatobi, as we pride ourselves on addressing the small details of travel that make the journey more enjoyable. Things like greeting you on arrival in Bali, assisting with your luggage, arranging ground transportation, accommodations, and sightseeing if a layover in Bali is desired. Our concierge team is known for their ability and willingness to address guests’ special needs, whether it’s tracking down a replacement for a vital but forgotten and hard-to-find personal item, or securing the best table at one of Bali’s most desirable restaurants.

Despite Wakatobi's remote location, travel between Bali and the resort is far easier than to other destinations in the region.

We added yet another refinement to our travel services, one that makes the final phase of the trip to our island paradise all the more comfortable and convenient.

Passengers on Wakatobi guest flights can enjoy a bit more cabin room, along with even more convenient connections as now all flights to the resort are aboard one of our premier carrier’s 70-seat turboprop airliners. This aircraft is significantly larger than those used in the past, which will allow for a single flight to handle all arriving passengers, even in times of high traffic. The plane, an ATR-72 600, cruises at better than 500 kilometers an hour, and has an exemplary safety record. Our airline carrier is also highly ranked for both safety and on-time service with ongoing quality-assurance programs and a series of ongoing quality-assurance programs.

Our flight schedule provides guests with more flexibility when planning vacations to the resort and cruises on Pelagian. It is also designed to dovetail with a number of international arrivals and departures at Denpasar International Airport, which can allow many guests to make same-day connections through Bali. “Our record for maintaining our schedule is exemplary,” says Operations Director Crispin Jones,  who also oversees Wakatobi’s Guest Services division. By switching to twice-weekly service, our guest flight has been incorporated into the scheduling of the airline as a regular fixture. As such, we returned to a regular flight departure time from Bali for guests heading to Wakatobi, and also a regular flight arrival time back into Bali for those guests after they check out from our resort,” he says.
