To & From the Airport
The airport is on Motu Mute, at the northern edge of the lagoon; transfers are offered to and from the Vaitape quay on two large catamaran ferries (included in the cost of your ticket). There’s a shuttle bus from the quay to the hotels and pensions at Matira Point (500 CFP), but it has to be booked in advance by the place where you're staying.
When leaving by air, you need to be at the quay at least 1¼ hours before the flight. The top hotels transfer their visitors directly to and from the airport; all other passengers are picked up at the quay by the catamaran ferries (the cost of this is included in the ticket).
Bicycle & Car
There are two petrol stations in Vaitape.
