Air Vanuatu direct flights to Santo, Vanuatu
Flying into Santo, your approach is usually from the South East, flying over Aore island with Luganville town on your left and Palekula bay on your right. 

The coast you will see on your right is the East coast of Sa
nto - in some cases you may even fly over Lope Lope Lodge while the plane does a u-turn to land... look for the big thatch roof of the restaurant.

You will be met at Pekoa International Airport and transported to Lope Lope.

At the lodge, you will be welcomed by our friendly staff with an island coconut whilst your luggage is whisked off to your bungalow... that is when you will truly be on holiday!!!

Important Note when booking your flights:

We are NOT in Port Vila as some have thought before... we are a 1 hour domestic flight from Port Vila on the biggest island in the Vanuatu group - Santo!

Direct flights are available with Air Vanuatu from Brisbane, and from Sydney you will be in transit in Port Vila for about 45 minutes - then a short 25 minute flight in our 737-800.

Please check your flight details are correct.
