Upon flight booking we will give you detailed information about the allowed luggage, based on your group size.

On arrival from your international flight you will need to clear Custom and collect your baggage. At the exit there will be our driver to take your luggage for the Van transportation. Depending on which airport you are arriving, the driver might also take you to the departure lounge of the Helicopter but in most cases it is just a small walk away, inside the same Terminal. There, an easy boarding procedure and you will be flying. At the end of your holiday we will arrange the luggage transportation by Van and your Helicopter flight, in time to catch your connecting flight home.
