Wakatobi Exclusive Private Air Service Itinerary
The last leg of your journey to Wakatobi will be a VIP flight on a private chartered plane to the resort's own airport.
We usually have two planes - one leaves early in the morning and the other leaves around noon. Your trip itinerant
and resort package will determine which flight you are scheduled to go on. The flight takes approximately two and
a half hours. On board you will be served a snack and drinks by our flight attendants while you enjoy the beautiful
scenery of Lombok's Rinjani volcano and the offshore reefs and atolls en route to Wakatobi.
To get a glimpse of what this VIP journey is like, watch the HD Video below.
We offer three resolutions to fit your broadband connection speed. You can also download the video to your

CHECK IN on the first day of your package:
To fly from Bali to Wakatobi, you will be required to check-in at the domestic departure terminal of the Airport

The Flight to Wakatobi
Please ensure to be on time. Wakatobi provides a special Wakatobi-guest-only check-in service for our
chartered flight to the resort. Our staff will be at the airport in the morning to assist you with your
luggage and ensure that everything runs smoothly. You do not need to carry a ticket or boarding
pass - your name will do. If you have paid your Resort Package, you will be welcomed!
After an effortless check-in, you will proceed to the upstairs executive airport lounge where you can enjoy
freshly brewed coffee, tea and pastries while getting to know your fellow travellers and get any queries
answered by our staff. Once your luggage has been taken onboard the airplane it will be your turn to embark.
Before you know it you'll be seated in the very comfortable charter airplane on your way to Wakatobi. After
take-off the airplane will rise towards cruising altitude while letting you enjoy the spectacular aerial
views of Bali and the neighbouring Lombok Island.
Heading North-East towards the Wakatobi Dive Resort's own (1 mi) 1.6 km airfield, you will be served a
meal and beverages en route. As it's a comparatively large plane (with seating capacity for more than
the number of passengers on board) you can comfortably walk around during the flight and
practice your mid-flight photography skills. As you get closer to Wakatobi, more and more small coral
atolls become visible below. Soon the plane will land in 'Diver's Heaven' - Wakatobi.
