Kokomo Private Island continues to enhance its customer journey from beginning to end with the opening of the first private aviation hangar at Nadi International Airport. Complete with a luxury transfer lounge, the new private hangar offers guests a seamless and exclusive transfer from Fiji mainland to the island. After a year-long build, the 2,266 square-metre hangar opened recently.
Designed to further enhance the luxurious travel experience, the FJ$5 million facility replicates the interiors of the island villas. Guests arriving on international flights to Nadi Airport are greeted at the information desk inside the arrivals hall before being transferred directly to Kokomo’s private hangar.
The transfer lounge includes entertainment, seating, a playroom for families, refreshments as well as shower facilities (stocked with luxurious Pure Fiji spa products) for guests to refresh after long-haul flights. On departure, guests will again be able to enjoy the benefits of the luxury lounge while waiting for their connecting flight out of Fiji.
Owner, Lang Walker, says, “We were determined to deliver on a vision to create the world’s best island and all the services that go with that, from private aircraft and helicopter transfers, to complete convenience and comfort for our guests. From the moment they arrive in Fiji to the time they depart… we are striving to lift the bar and quality of everything we do.
“The next step in this journey is to attain a license that enables us to operate as an FBO so we can take care of the needs of guests flying in on private planes, from clearing customs to refuelling and transfers,” added Walker.
The hangar was brought to life after a year of design and construction. Raising the standard of the aviation industry in Fiji and creating new jobs, Kokomo’s private hangar offers housing for two twin-otter seaplanes and two helicopters. Staffed with 49 team members, including pilots, engineers, scheduling, hospitality and ground staff, the hangar ensures a luxurious and well-organised guest experience.
To celebrate the launch, Kokomo Private Island is currently offering complementary return helicopter and seaplane transfers from Nadi International Airport for all new bookings for travel prior to 20 December 2019. A minimum five-night stay applies.
