Media release 12 August: In times of growing competition and holidaymakers looking for more bang for their buck, Air Vanuatu has been investing heavily in the overall passenger experience. “What sets us apart is our service – and always has,” chief executive officer Joseph Laloyer said. “That service starts from the moment our passengers shop around for the best deals and doesn’t finish until they are home safely after what we hope will be the holiday of a lifetime.”

After months on the creative and design stage, Island Life Magazine has launched a new online magazine at www.islandlifevanuatu.com. The site will fill the current online information gap in Vanuatu by offering features and news online as well as information on ‘everything Vanuatu’. Patricia Gil, editor of Island Life, is thrilled with the new developments and the success of the magazine. “We know that there are many people overseas who would like to ‘keep in touch’ with the country, either because they are planning to come over or because they lived here or visited the country before. Now they will be able to find all the latest news and information about what is happening in Vanuatu. It is something that many of our readers in Vanuatu also wanted, to be able to interact with the magazine online.”
