International air services to Santo were re-established today, providing a much-needed boost to the tourism sector eager to resume operations.

A direct flight to Santo now departs from Brisbane every Thursday, returning via Port Vila.

“We know we live in a magnificent place, and we are excited to again be able to share it with visitors. Without this commitment to maintaining air services economic growth for the Northern Islands would be difficult. We are looking forward to working together to make this service sustainable,” said Rayman Leung, Chairman of the Espiritu Santo Tourism Association.

“The Vanuatu Tourism Office has supported this initial launch with an investment value of over 1.2 million vatu for a social media campaign across Southeast Queensland so far reaching over 1.3 million people. The Santo tourism industry have also been very active getting the message out to generate business as soon as possible. The VTO have also received a positive response to the recommencement of the flights from our international trade partners who are looking forward to working through the opportunities to promote the service,’ said CEO of the Vanuatu Tourism Office Ms Adela Issachar Aru. “In addition to the campaign there will be signage in Brisbane airport promoting Santo.”

“We look forward to working with Solomons Airlines, the industry, and government on a marketing plan. We will all need to work together to make the route a success. It is important for all of Santo, not just tourism,” she said. “The resumption of domestic flights also remains critical in the success of this service.”

Solomon Airlines, a key player in the Solomon Islands’ aviation market, has been at the forefront of promoting tourism since its inception in 1962. With its headquarters in Honiara and offices across various regional locations, the airline continues to play a significant role in the region’s travel industry.
