Why fly by private jet?


Enjoy a number of advantages by flying privately on your Indonesia bespoke tour. Commercial flights within the country are known for delays and cancellations. However with your personal jet, you’ll save valuable time and won’t have to worry about transfers or long waits.  You’ll also travel comfortably, and feel at home on your King Air Turbo Prop jet, a roomier and safer way to travel than by commercial airline.

The Remote Lands Guides were excellent. The cars used for transportation were roomy and clean. The hotels were 5 star and their attention to detail was over the top. There was only perfection from the people we met and it was also comforting to know that our trip was being carefully monitored by Remote Lands supervisors every step of the way. We would recommend Remote Lands to anyone needing exceptional service in Asia.
