Airports and Lounges
We connect French Polynesia daily to the major international airports of the countries we operate. In each of these airports, you will have access to the Business Lounge if you are traveling in Poerava Business class or if you have a Lounge Pass.
Check-in counters generally close one hour before flight departure, so be sure to go to the airport early with your flight number and all your travel documents.
