Faa’a International Airport is the aviation centre of French Polynesia. All international flights arrive here, and Air Tahiti flights to the other islands leave from here. Flights within each archipelago hop from one island to the next, but most connections between archipelagos are via Faa’a (fa-ah-ah).
All passenger boats to other islands moor at the Gare Maritime in Pape’ete. The numerous cargo ships to the different archipelagos work from the Motu Uta port zone, to the north of the city.
