Charter #1Air Taxi operates a fleet of single and twin engine aircraft. We have aircraft equipped to fly IFR (Instrument Flight Rules), in adverse weather conditions. All aircraft are maintained to the highest standards by our own, dedicated maintenance facility. Each aircraft type has been specifically selected for its reliability, ruggedness and ability to operate into the many “bush” airstrips of Vanuatu.

For intrepid travellers wanting to get out and truly explore the diverse archipelago of Vanuatu, Air Taxi offers the flexibility and range of aircraft to suit. Call or email Meliana so she can assist you with tailoring the perfect island hopping holiday in paradise. You can also furnish us with your desired itinerary and we will make it happen for you.

Charter #2Vanuatu’s numerous islands mean air travel is the most practical means of getting to most places. The infrequency of scheduled operations to many of Vanuatu’s islands, means air charter can be the most efficient, practical and often most cost effective way of completing a mission.

  • Fly where you want, when you want.
  • The convenience of not having to wait around for a scheduled flight service (sometimes many days).
  • Small passenger numbers means personal attention to each & every customer.
  • No arduous check-in formalities.
