Flight Review of Air Vanuatu NF11– Sydney to Port Vila


Air Vanuatu keeps things simple. And with service like this, why not?

Seat: 26A (window) – Economy class

Check-in: Given the queue, check in was fairly swift. And with smiles all around nobody seemed to mind the short wait.  Counter staff were professional and cheery.

On time performance: 25 minutes late in taking off, though arrived right on time.

Cabin: Seats were a little old, but saw us comfortably through the 3.5 hour journey.
Temperature did get a little chilly though. And an earlier ‘lights out’ would have better allowed for a little shuteye.

Crew: Outstanding. Diligently scurried around. Never too far away to keep your apple juice filled and your tea hot. And in true ni-Vanuatu style, nearly always smiling. 

Meals: A deliciously light and fluffy cous cous complemented a wonderful sweet potato and feta filled pastry. If ever you feel inclined to go vegetarian for a flight, do it on Air Vanuatu. Simple, yet seriously impressive. Perfect with a cold Tusker (local beer).  

Entertainment: Four music channels and a kids’ station. Plus images and commentary of what lay ahead in Vanuatu. A doco about four ni-Vanuatu villagers travelling to the other side of the world was enjoyable. The absence of an entertainment system was noticed but not at all missed.

Favourite thing: The food and the staff. And the promise of more to come in Vanuatu.
