Airports in Tahiti
The airport is located about seven miles (11km) from Papeete, on the island of Tahiti.
Getting to the city
In the parking lot opposite the terminal building passengers can hop aboard Le Truck, open-topped taxi-vans, providing transport in Tahiti. Le Truck vans are being steadily replaced, however, with more modern buses. Taxis are also available. It is worth making sure that the fare is agreed on up front before setting off in a taxi.
