Banwa Private Island’s preferred aviation partner, Ascent features more private air options
Take off and breeze through the skies in a private jet, helicopter or single-engine aircraft by Ascent Flights Global (“Ascent”) to the exclusive and all-villa Banwa Private Island.
Banwa Private Island’s preferred aviation partner, Ascent features more private air options for a truly luxurious and seamless experience, whether flying directly to the island or through any of Palawan domestic airports. Every charter flight is tailored to the guest’s needs, meticulously organized from enquiry until well after arrival.
The most favored and convenient charter flight from Manila to Banwa Private Island is through an 8-seater Cessna Grand Caravan EX seaplane, landing directly on the doorstep of the exclusive sanctuary.
Complementing the seaplane and multiple helicopter options, newly available Ascent aircraft include the Cessna Turbo 206H suitable for small groups of up to 5 passengers and perfect for adventure travels with its versatility and cargo space. While the Cessna 172SP Skyhawk for 3 passengers is considered as the most successful aircraft for its reliability and comfort.
For groups of up to 8 passengers, the Swiss crafted Pilatus PC-12NG offers the ultra-modern cabin experience, equipped with all you need to relax, work or share in-flight moments. For guests wishing to share a private island experience with larger parties of up to 14, the Gulfstream jet is the aircraft of choice.
Roundtrip private flight rates start from US$5,700 from Manila to San Vicente, closest airport to the island, with onward journey in a premium sports utility vehicle followed by a short and scenic speedboat transfer to the island.
