Banwa Private Island Partners with Ascent

Beginning September 1, 2021, Banwa Private Island will offer a truly curated experience of personal safety and privacy through sustainable air travel thru its partnership with Ascent Flights Global (Ascent). 

This partnership offers an exclusive, seamless and highly personalized travel bubble experience from on-demand private flights to the luxurious island sanctuary. 

Banwa Private Island is located in Northeastern Palawan and is set amidst one of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty. The glistening island of lush, verdant landscaping and pristine white sands is the ultimate in luxury, tranquility and infinite privacy. 

Ascent brings you closer to nature and what Banwa Private Island has to offer. 

Conveniently and privately accessible by air from Manila by a preferred 8-seater seaplane directly from Manila on a 1 hour 45-minute scenic flight, and landing right at the doorstep of the exclusive island. Aside from the seaplane, helicopters that can carry up to 10 passengers from NAIA or The Peninsula Manila's helipad are also available. Ascent also has large capacity fixed-wing aircraft that can travel to any destination in the Philippines. 

Alternatively, guests can choose any commercial airline to any of Palawan's three commercial airports, followed by a short helicopter flight across the Sulu Sea and land on Banwa Private Island's own heli-lawn.

For a more cost-effective option guests can also opt to travel to the island via a premium Sports Utility Vehicle from either San Vicente or Puerto Princesa followed by a short boat transfer to the island. 

Ascent also offers to service both domestic and international arrivals by private jets, be it in Manila or Clark for onward journey with any of their varying type of aircraft, or directly to either San Vicente or Puerto Princesa airports to Palawan. 

Part of Ascent's bespoke services is ground handling arrangements with meet and greet arrangements, inter-airport transfers, exclusive lounge service and immigration fast track. 

"We found a great partner in Ascent with our shared goal to deliver exceptional, personalized and intimate guest experiences to our affluent clientele," said Peter Nilsson, CEO of Banwa Private Island. "Our utmost priority is the genuine care and well-being of our guests from their chartered flight to their holiday experience in our informal and intimate island sanctuary. Personal safety and hand-crafted travel experiences have become even more important in the luxury travel landscape nowadays. Ascent's long-term approach and commitment to a decarbonized world is well aligned with Banwa Private Island's continuous dedication to sustainability." 

"Banwa Private Island's vision of an enhanced experience by air between the island's guests' home, and its remote delicate environment, is dear to us," said Lionel Sinai-Sinelnikoff, founder and CEO of Ascent. "With this partnership, guests' experience now starts with a seamless and private bubble. Ascent's dedicated solution for Banwa Private Island, brings a holistic journey by air, like no other, beyond motion. With best-in-class air operations on fuel-efficient aircraft, Banwa Private Island's guests elevate their journey with peace of mind."
