French Polynesia plane tickets & flights





French Polynesia is considered an overseas country of France. Far away from France, but still belonging to it, one of the very last colonies that haven't broken away. Perhaps because it's worth for the islands to maintain close ties with such a strong country like France.

French Polynesia has a number of dreamlike islands... We all know Bora Bora...

Flight connections are better than you imagine, please check this guide for Polynesia/Tahiti plane tickets and air travel info...


Domestic flights

Between the islands it is a popular way to travel by plane. There are multiple small airports and air strips interconnected. Many are not even recognized by IATA and ICAO, therefore do not have such codes.


International flights

Mostly between Papeete (the capital) and nearby countries. Very good connections to New Zealand and Australia. But some airlines will take you as far away as Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo.
