Getting there & away
The archipelago is accessible by plane; 29 atolls have airstrips and are served by Air Tahiti. Most of the traffic is to and from Pape'ete, but there are also connections with Bora Bora, the Marquesas and the Gambier Archipelago. Within the archipelago, Rangiroa and Hao are the principal flight hubs. If you're visiting an island, always give the Air Tahiti representative a contact address or phone number, as schedules are subject to change.
The Dory, Corbia, Mareva Nui, Taporo V and VI, Saint-Xavier Maris-Stella, Kura Ora II and III, Hotu Maru, Vai-Aito, Nuku Hau and Aranui all serve the archipelago from Pape'ete and most take passengers.
