“Great way to start our trip”
Review of Air Vanuatu


Reviewed 19 October 2017 via mobile

Lovely flight and lovely attendants the flight was a great way to start our holiday check in was fast and simple. Ensure you have your return flight details or etickets on you as you need those to get through customs at Port Villa

Although the airport in Port Vila is a little dodgy, the flight itself was very pleasant - starting from the upbeat music being broadcast & the big smiles by the crew.
The service on board was very good and attentive. Seats were comfortable.
It was a pleasure to fly Air Vanuatu.

The flight left not just on time but ahead of time which was great. It does not take as long to get through customs as it did getting into Vanuatu. Meal provided and a cup of tea/coffee. Pleasant staff and the flight was smooth. Food was beans and scrambled eggs or omelette with a sausage with both so the breakfasts were more or less the same so little choice on food.

My wife and I were lucky enough to fly business class from Sydney to Port Vila. Air Vanuatu business class passengers are treated to their own check in line as well as the express line to get through immigration and security. We were then able to use the Qantas Business Class Lounge where we enjoyed an excellent breakfast and great service. Our flight was delayed for around 45 minutes due to its late arrival from Vila earlier that morning however, we were kept up to date with regular announcements. Once on board the aircraft we were offered hot towels and a drink prior to take off. Our food and drink service began almost as soon as the fasten seat belt sign was turned off. The quality of the food and drinks were excellent and the flight attendant in our cabin was friendly, helpful and always available. The in-flight entertainment is via the Air Vanuatu app. It is somewhat limited but on a short flight such as this, it's not a major concern anyway. After landing in Vila our luggage was quickly available thanks to the priority baggage tags issued to business class passengers. We also flew from Port Vila to Santo return and then back to Sydney in economy class. It was not uncommon for our flights to be a few minutes late but the service and product was always excellent.

This trip was quick and scenic. Loved being a bit lower than some craft this meant we got to keep our eyes out for whales... but did not see any. Staff kept luggage overnight while we went for an over night trip. So friendly and helpful.
