When do I need to get there?
You must be at your charter on the Monday afternoon of departure. If you come from Medan and have the transfer package, you’ll need to be in Medan by 08:30am Monday.

Departure/arrival from Medan on same day of charter can be organised in some cases. Please contact us before confirming flights as domestic flight schedules do change. If you want to come into Indonesia on the same day as your charter departure, the Silk Air flights from Singapore arriving in Medan 0755 or Air Asia AK450 from KL arriving at 0735 will work.

When do I book my flight home?
On the way home, we recommend you stay the night in Medan on Friday and depart on Saturday after your return, as the domestic flights from Gunungsitoli to Medan are occasionally delayed or cancelled due to weather or operational requirements. If you really want to depart on the Friday night, we can aim to connect with flights leaving Medan after 7pm, but you must have fully comprehensive travel insurance as we can bear no responsibility for missed connections due to domestic airline delays or cancellations (check with travel insurance conditions re coverage of delayed flights).
