The Indonesian domestic airlines have been hard hit by fuel price increases and many of the airline companies have been struggling to maintain operations. Some companies have gone out of business while others are constantly changing schedules without notice. This has caused us many problems therefore we now have a once a week charter flight to ensure that our guests and their baggage are not affected by the unreliable service of the domestic airlines. If needed the plane will be reconfigured to accommodate large surfboards and excess baggage.
The weekly charter flight is every Thursday to Tambolaka Airport in West Sumba during the months of April though to the end of October; Tambolaka is the closest airport to Nihiwatu. Please consult with our booking office for details on Tambolaka flight times and schedules of domestic flights at Waingapu airport in East Sumba.
