Back to Tahiti and of course, Fakarava. The early arrival of the flights to PPT make for a great opportunity to catch your breath and even some marketing before flying away to the end of the world ( as it seems : FAKARAVA) Enjoy the restaurant in the Atrium with 1/2 hour of free Wifi, great food options and also...

We had a round trip flight with Air Tahiti from Tahiti to Bora Bora . Honestly, when we found that we were going to be flying on a smaller, propeller-driven aircraft, we didn't know exactly what to expect. Suffice ti to say that we were pleasantly surprised. The aircraft was spotless and uncrowded. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive....

We've flown to many destinations in the 5 archipelagos; (Air Tahiti serves 46 islands in French Polynesia and one international destination, Rarotonga, Cook Islands). The service is impeccable from start to finish. Latest flight from Tahiti, rapid and efficient check-in with multi-lingual personnel, vast and comfortable waiting room with snack bar, pristine bathrooms and comfortable seating. Clear announcements in Tahitian,...

The check-in in line must of been the worst experience I've every had while traveling. They kept pulling people out of the line and moving them to other lines so they could be served more quickly. When I got to the front of the line I stood there for at least 15 minutes while they put other customers in front...

Always ok in every way. Very simple, with a fleet of ATR72 propeller planes with two engines and 72 seats. They fly all over French Polynesia and are very reliable and always on time. A pleasure compared to American Airlines and Air Tahiti Nui.

There are no other options if you want to fly between islands in French Polynesia. The ATR-72 planes are modern and serve the purpose of inter-island flying but the seat padding is thin and the seats are very upright and uncomfortable.

Literally, it was our only option to get from Moorea to Bora Bora, so we didn't have much of a choice. Good thing the plane, the staff and the whole flight experience was great. While my wife is not a huge fan of the smaller commuter/interisland planes, even she was impressed by how spacious the plane was and by how...

Still recovering from a late night arrival, it was a pleasure to deal with an efficient, friendly and well organised carrier. The plane was a modern and very clean ATR and the 45 min flight was excellent. A refreshing drink was served on board. They managed to put us on an earlier flight than we were scheduled for which gave...
