This year, the world's largest and longest-running aviation tour company will announce its integration launch with Rezdy, the world's largest reservation, global distribution and online channel management platform. Rezdy now enables tour operators in 88 countries to book Papillon and its brands in real-time. It is an unprecedented move, making Papillon an early adopter of this new technology with Expedia being one of the first to book.  

In addition, Papillon will be highlighting new and upcoming services and experiences including:

From Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines (GCSA):

90th anniversary: Celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime milestone, the company will announce a special 90th anniversary historic tour that will transport guests back to 1927 and the dawn of the air tour industry. The momentous milestone and accompanying tour offerings will be announced shortly.

New private flights from Las Vegas to Page, Arizona: Beginning Aug. 1, GCSA will offer private charter flights from the Entertainment Capital of the World to one of the most magnificent outdoor destinations. Upon landing in Page, guests will experience a guided tour of Antelope Canyon, one of the most spectacular slot canyons in the world featuring Navajo Sandstone rock deposits that were formed millions of years ago. The  tour continues with a visit of the famous Horseshoe Bend where guests can peer off the edge of the Colorado River. A light lunch is included. Options include a private Cessna Caravan that can seat up to nine guests for $3,500 or a private Twin Otter/Vistaliner that can accommodate up to 16 guests for $6,000. Non-stop service for individual guests to be available starting April 1, 2018.

Grand Canyon Helicopters (GCH):

·         Heli & Whitewater Rafting Adventure: Offered in partnership with Hualapai River Runners, the brand new adventure includes a 4-hour tour in an eight-person motorized river raft, designed especially for navigating the Colorado River. Rapids range from 4 to 7, depending upon water levels and is experienced during the first 12 miles of the trip. Along the way, a stop is made for guests to enjoy a moderate hike to Travertine Cavern Falls and a relaxing lunch next to the sandy river bank. Lunch is provided by the Hualapai River Runners and includes sandwiches, assorted beverages and snacks. The whitewater rafting portion concludes at Grand Canyon West.

         New Hoover Dam heliport and tour collection: GCH recently introduced four brand-new tours, making it easier than ever for guests to have an unforgettable “flightseeing” experience of the world-famous Hoover Dam at an exceptional value. With a new heliport located next to the Hoover Dam Lodge Hotel & Casino on U.S. 93, GCH now flies guests closer to the dam than any other tour operator and offer breathtaking views of not only the dam, but also Lake Mead and the rugged, volcanic terrain of Black Canyon. Short on time? These new tours range from three minutes to two hours. Pricing begins at $39 per person for a three minute flight.

Tower Butte: Adventurers can fly up and stand where many cannot go: the top Tower Butte, the incredible sandstone pinnacle that rises 5,000 feet above sea level. Located in Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park near Page, Arizona, the butte, which is defined as an isolated monument, rises abruptly above the surrounding land, changes colors throughout the day depending upon how the sun shines upon it. Included in the tour is fascinating information regarding the Navajo culture and the beauty of the surrounding lands of the Navajo Nation. The price is $249 per person.
