Your first experience of any destination is usually the airport. While all airports differ greatly, your experience here can have a significant impact on your vacation before it even begins.
In addition to offering a scenic and impressive approach, your arrival here will kick off your island adventure with the warmest of welcomes.
Because Bora Bora enjoys such a remote and isolated location, getting to Bora Bora is rarely simple or cheap. It is, however, always absolutely worth it.
There are no direct flights to Bora Bora, so all air travel to this French Polynesian island first arrives in Tahiti, at Faa’a International Airport.
The airport in Bora Bora is also known as Motu Mute Airport. On average, around 275,000 passengers a year come through the airport.
Standard tickets to Bora Bora include a baggage allowance of 50lbs (23kgs).
On arrival, the best view from the plane is on the left. You’ll see the beautiful Mount Otemanu and the island as you land.
