Gokto is the result of the merging of our two nicknames, as well as being an airport in Papua New Guinea; one of the smallest airports in the world, where we met for the first time. Any new project that we take on board is a journey: and like any journey, planning the destination is essential in order to avoid surprises.

From the take-off to the landing and during the flight in between, we make sure that every single aspect runs smoothly and turns into an unforgettable service. If a challenge is what propels us into the air, success is our preferred destination.
