Your Aitutaki adventure begins the moment you board your flight!

Your flight to Paradise is about to depart . . .

Ask anyone who has ever visited Aitutaki and they will all tell you - the flight to Aitutaki from Rarotonga is one of the highlights of their holiday. Departing from the runway at Rarotonga's international airport, you will see the majesty of Rarotonga with its rainforest-clad mountains, fringing reef, and white sand beach. As you enjoy the relaxing 45 minute flight, you will soon see the smallest of islands on the horizon, slowly coming into sight, about to reveal its true beauty and majesty.

Aitutaki is an atoll, with many uninhabited motu (islands) in its majestic lagoon. Just over 2,000 very lucky people call this island home, and you will be hard pressed to find anyone in the world more proud of their homeland. Aitutakians are a very proud people, quick with a smile and a kind word. While our beaches and lagoon draw guests from all over the world, it is important to take some time and interact and meet with the locals, for it is our people that truly make this such a special place. So, sit back, relax, and welcome to our island paradise home.
