Banwa Private Island in Philippines has partnered with Ascent Flights Global to offer guests with exclusive transfers using seaplanes, helicopters and private jets, as needed.
Located in northeastern Palawan and nestled in Sulu Sea, Banwa Private Island is set amidst one of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty imaginable.
Peter Nilsson, CEO of Banwa Private Island, said, “We found a great partner in Ascent with our shared goal to deliver exceptional, personalised and intimate guest experiences to our affluent clientele. Our utmost priority is the genuine care and well-being of our guests from their chartered flight to their holiday experience in our informal and intimate island sanctuary. Personal safety and hand-crafted travel experiences have become even more important in the luxury travel landscape as we gear up towards Philippines’ borders reopening to International travel.”
Guests can choose to take a 1 hour and 45-minute seaplane flight from Manila, seating up to 8 pax and landing directly in front of Banwa Private Island’s house reef, or a 10-seat helicopter ride from Manila Ninoy Airport or one of Palawan’s three commercial airports San Vicente, Puerto Princesa or El Nido across the Sulu Sea to land on Banwa Private Island’s heli-lawn.
Ascent also offers a variety of private jet services that includes ground handling arrangements, meet and greet services, inter-airport transfers, exclusive lounge service and immigration fast track if needed.
