Pacific Private Jet

Pacific Private Private Jet, Air Rarotonga's Jet charter division, has acquired a Cessna Citation business jet to expand air charter operations both within the Cook Islands and to neighbouring Pacific Island countries.

The aircraft seats up to eight passengers and can reach the Northern Group islands, Tahiti or Niue direct from Rarotonga in less than two hours flight time. It is fitted with a gravel kit for operation onto unpaved runways.

The expanded air charter operation is operated under the trade name of Pacific Private Jet with long time Air Rarotonga executive Teariki Numanga heading up sales and operations for the venture. An application for licensing of the new aircraft has been made to the Cook Islands Ministry of Transport.

The Citation jet is now fully operational and can be fitted with additional equipment to undertake medevac flights within the region and to New Zealand.

Air Rarotonga Managing Director Ewan Smith said “the ability to operate charter over long sectors around the region at jet speeds will be a real game changer for us. As well, a fully equipped air ambulance with the ability to get through to Auckland is the realisation of a long held ambition we have had”.
