We did the Heli transport from Nadi to LikuLiku resort. The trip was amazing and definitely worth it. I would recommend this AMAZING way to travel.

Hi All, Looking to book with PIA in September but I've been trying to get the answer to a few questions but with the time difference of 12 hours process is slow and some of the questions I've asked have been missed adding to the delay so figured I'd reach out :) We are staying on the mainline for about a week and the Westin and then looking to take a combo flight out to Tokoriki island resort I understand the helicopter has a luggage allowance of 15kg pp which given we are on a 2 week holiday we will of course have more than 15kg to travel with. So my current questions are: Are we able to take one bag of 30kg and leave the remaining luggage with PIA - And is it secure? Do PIA offer a free transfer from Westin resort to the departure? Where does the seaplane land on it's return and from there how would we get back to collect our bag? and lastly Where are PIA based as once we land back we'll need to head to Nadi international airport Many Thanks Ryan
