Hello all, I've been looking for flights to TRW (Tarawa, Kiribati), but could not find any at lastminute.com, viajar.com or viajeselcorteingles.com...etc. Knowing that the airport's code is TRW, I assume that there must be some airline service to this remote pacific country. Could any of you help me finding a way to travel there? also, if there's anyone how had been there, could you share your experiences, please?

Thanks for your help.

Looks like you have to get to Nadi (NAN) first, and then fly Air Pacific.

I'd try getting to LAX, then fly Air Pacific LAX-NAN-TRW.

Alternatively, CO Micronesia flies to NAN from HNL.

Air Pacific fly twice weekly to Tarawa from Nadi on Tuesdays and Thursdays using B737. Get to LAX, jump on Air Pacific to Nadi. Once you get into Nadi, you will have just over 2 hours transit then on the aircraft to Tarawa...

Air Pacific can get you there from Nadi - probably your best choice. Air Pacific connects to (among other places) HKG, which is probably your best bet coming from Europe (unless you go west, in which case they also fly to LAX and (I think) HNL)

Not sure of your dates, but I found this with a quick search on Kayak:

MAD-LHR (BA)
LHR-ICN (KE)
ICN-NAN (KE)
NAN-TRW (FJ)

$2650 on Orbitz. And it's a long trip, too - 54 hours. There's a 23 hour layover in NAN, but the others are reasonable - 1:35 in LHR and 2:15 in ICN.

Obviously, this is going to be the limiting factor on travel dates.

That flight hasn't started. No other word has been released about it either. FJ is the only way at this point.

Are you sure that you really want to go?

Check out this book:

I know that other posters have provided you with more useful flight information, but
the book is worth a read.



First, benzene in my Perrier, and now this!

You could go MAD-ICN-NAN with KE and then NAN-TRW on FJ

MAD-ICN 12hrs 20mins
ICN-NAN 10hrs 10mins
NAN-TRW 3hrs 0 mins

I also believe, if you talk to your travel agent, if you are transfering through ICN and your flight isnt until the next day, you get a free knights accom. in ICN.

I hope this has helped! Big grin

In regards to that, I had an itinerary on DL back in October BUD-JFK October 12th, JFK-MIA October 13th. Delta said they do not provide accommodation. Should I have gone higher with my request instead of paying $285 for a night in Manhattan? Of course, there are cheaper hotels near JFK but I wanted Manhattan. Still, had free accommodation been provided, I wouldn't have refused.



Where aviation is not the side show, it's the main show!!!
