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...

There was a small queue when we arrived at the terminal, but check-in was pleasant and efficient. The short (45 minutes) flight is on a prop plane so it's all economy and pretty cramped for us taller people. Because the planes are small, all luggage must be checked except for small carry-ons. As there are no assigned seats, be sure...

A great little flight and despite its short duration all the staff are very efficient and friendly. The aircraft was clean and the boarding process very quick and pain free.

All luggage apart from small carry-ons has to be checked. Free seating means no allocated seats, so if you want to get seats together, and a good window position for photos, make sure you are at the head of the queue. For photo ops get a seat on the left going to Bora-Bora and the right side coming back. Planes...

We used this airline to get to Bora Bora from Tahiti and back. The personnel are all friendly and professional. The aircraft were prop planes, clean and looked well maintained. When going to Bora Bora as others have said sit on the left side for great island views. Pineapple juice is offered free in-flight. Only complaint is that our return...

So we took this flight from Tahiti to Bora Bora and it is a nice quick flight of maybe 40 minutes. The plane was clean, the seats comfortable. The attendants were excellent. Since it is such a short flight there is no meal but they do offer you pineapple juice or water halfway through the flight. When flying from Tahiti...

Air Tahiti provided great inter-island service for us between Papeete/Rangiroa as well as Papeete and Bora Bora. Quick island hopping flights with the delicious fruit drink for everyone makes the short jaunt even better!

When flying from Huahine to Bora Bora, make sure to try and sit on the left side of the plane. The views of Huahine as you depart are great, as are the views of Ra'iatea and Taha'a. But the best views are yet to come... By sitting on the left side of the plane you will have a fantastic view...

The short flight from Moorea to Huahine was less than 30 minutes in duration, but the flight crew were friendly and welcoming. It was a perfectly clear day, and sitting on the left side of the plane (Tip! Sit on the left side), we had excellent views of Moorea upon departure and had even better views of Huahine, as we...
