United Airlines Announces a New ‘Visit Micronesia’ Airfare Package


Travelers can explore the magic of Kosrae Island and Kosrae Village while taking advantage of United Airlines new Visit Micronesia reduced airfare package. Kosrae Island is located halfway between Hawaii and Australia in the heart of the tropical Pacific and offers adventure, pristine paradise and a peaceful escape from overcrowded tourist spots.

Kosrae Village, an eco-lodge and dive resort located on Kosrae Island offers guests an authentic island experience, and at a great value for those that take advantage of United Airlines new special airfare package. Guests can enjoy accommodations in traditional Kosraen “lohms”, or cottages that were built by local craftsmen using sustainable building practices and materials.

Travelers sleep just steps from ocean’s edge in elevated, palm-thatched cottages. Nestled beneath mangrove, pandanus, and palm trees, accommodations, a PADI 5-star dive center, and the island’s top restaurant are connected by candlelit pathways. In addition to world-class diving, guests can enjoy hiking to ancient ruins or through the island’s jungles, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, snorkeling and more.
