Papeete, Tahiti

Faa’a International Airport (PPT) is the strategic gateway to the South Pacific and our home base on the island of Tahiti. Air Tahiti Nui operates from the International Terminal Building. For transfers to inter-island flights, Air Tahiti operates from the same terminal and Air Moorea operates from a separate terminal located within a short walking distance from the Air Tahiti Nui arrival area.

If you are connecting to an early morning departure flight, it is the normal requirement that you collect your checked baggage and clear customs/immigration formalities before checking in for your onward flight.
