Pacific islands are open to international tourism

Most countries in the Pacific Islands region (Melanesia, Micronesia, Polynesia) are open to general tourism. The governments resumed the issuance of tourist visas, and airlines reopened their international routes to such popular destinations as Bora Bora, Hawaii, Tahiti, FijiNew Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and Samoa.

Cook Islands, New Caledonia, Niue, and Vanuatu have lifted all travel restrictions for arrivals. There is no mandatory quarantine or health testing for all visitors – regardless of their vaccination status. French Polynesia, Guam, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Palau, Solomon Islands, and Tonga may still require proof of vaccination and/or a negative Covid test result to be presented on arrival.

However, the regulations may change at short notice, depending on the situation – always check the official websites before booking a flight to Pacific Islands.

Arriving in Bora Bora

  • If you are flying to Bora Bora from abroad, you will most likely land at one of its biggest international airportsits main international airportBora Bora Airport BOB, also known as Motu Mute Airport, located on the motu (islet) of Motu Mute. However, as there are no direct flights to Bora Bora, you must first fly into Faa'a International Airport in Papeete on the main island of Tahiti, then take a 50-minute flight to Bora Bora with Air Tahiti.

    Bora Bora Airport is a relatively small airport – because of its short (1500 m / 5,000 feet) runway, it can only accommodate luxury private jets and smaller aircraft such as the ATR-42 (48 seats) and ATR-72 (70 seats) turboprop used by Air Tahiti. It also has limited facilities - among the available services are a snack bar, souvenir shops, and a newsagent.

    A boat ride is required (no taxis!) to get from the airport to the final destination; most luxury hotels in Bora Bora provide their own transport between the airport and the hotel (it is recommended to book the resort transfer in advance). Booking a private transfer online is also a good option, as the cost of such transfers is usually significantly lower than the fees charged by resorts. Boats are stationed outside the airport and are identified with resort names for easy identification by guests. Unless you took a cruise or ferry, you would arrive at Bora Bora with Air Tahiti – the airline offers convenient free shuttle boat service to the village of Vaitape on the main island aboard the Bora Bora Navette (the crossing takes approximately 20 minutes). Your Air Tahiti ticket entitles you to use the shuttle before the departure and after the arrival of your flight

    These are also the best (and the cheapest) airports to fly into Bora Bora. As they are used by many airlines serving the same routes, the competition for passengers is fierce – with decreased airfare as a result.
  • Once in Bora Bora, take advantage of frequent intercity flights operated by domestic airlines such as Air Tahiti, Air Tahiti Nui, Air Moana, and Mana Otter. Those in-country carriers typically offer lower fares, operate from smaller airports located closer to city centers (you save on ground transportation), and provide flexible schedules – with a wide range of departure times.
  • Planning to explore the region? Popular destinations near Bora Bora can be easily reached with regional low-cost carriers (LCCs) by the likes of Air Tahiti, Aircalin, Air Raratonga, and French bee. If you have a layover in Bora Bora and plan to fly only a short distance to one of its neighboring countries, these budget airlines are an excellent way to save money. However, the “no-frills” carrier may not provide free checked baggage allowance, complimentary food, in-flight entertainment systems, and fast customer support. You may not even get to choose your seats, unless you pay extra.

Connecting from Tahiti flight to Bora Bora flight

There are no direct flights to Bora Bora. When traveling to Bora Bora from other parts of the world, travelers must first fly into Papeete’s Faa’a International Airport PPT on the main island of Tahiti. Airlines such as Air New Zealand, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Air France, French Bee, Air Tahiti Nui, and LATAM operate direct flights to Tahiti from different parts of the world including Europe, the Americas, and Asia Pacific.

Upon arrival in Papeete, after clearing Tahiti airport immigration and picking up luggage, passengers will have to transfer to an inter-island flight, operated by Air Tahiti (the only airline that serves this route) for a 50-minute flight to Bora Bora. It is essential to note that Air Tahiti is different from Air Tahiti Nui, the main airline of French Polynesia, which operates international flights to Tahiti. Air Tahiti recommends a minimum of two hours for transfer between international and domestic flights.

Air Tahiti operates more than 10 flights daily from Tahiti to Bora Bora with extra flights added during peak season in July and August. About half of them are direct flights, and others are flights with a short 20-minute layover (you don’t need to change aircraft) on the nearby islands of Raiatea and Huahine. The last flight leaves at 5:25 pm and arrives in Bora Bora at 6:15 pm. The average cost of a direct flight from Tahiti to Bora Bora is around $250 (A$350 / €230).

Island hopping in French Polynesia

French Polynesia, located in the Pacific Ocean, covers an area as large as Western Europe and consists of 118 islands spread across 5 distinct island groups. Due to the considerable distance between islands, flying is the most efficient way of island hopping. The aerial views from the plane are sure to be some of the most stunning you’ll ever experience!

Tahiti and Bora Bora islands lie among the Society Islands group. The islands nearby are easiest to get to and provide more accommodation choices – so the other Society Islands such as Moorea, Raiatea, Tahaa, Maupiti, and Huahine are great choices for quick island hopping. The Tuamotu Archipelago, located further out, boasts scenic islands such as Tikehau, Fakarava, and Rangiro. The Marquesas, Gambier, and Austral island groups are even more remote, offering a more secluded experience for those seeking less tourist activity. You’ll likely have these untouched islands all to yourself.

Bora Bora and French Polynesia archipelagos: 5 island groups
A comparison of the five main island groups in French Polynesia (Society, Tuamotu, Marquesas, Gambier, and Austral Islands) to the map of Europe

Air Tahiti is the only inter-island carrier connecting the island groups in French Polynesia. Flights depart from Bora Bora Airport and Faa’a Airport in the capital of Papeete on Tahiti. 47 islands are accessible, with popular destinations having flights 3-5 times a week and less frequent service to more remote islands. Flight times range from 1 hour to 3 hours, with the shortest flights serving the Tuamotu Atolls and the longest reaching the Marquesas Islands.

Secure the best view on your flight to Bora Bora

The experience of arriving in Bora Bora by plane is elevated by the stunning views of shimmering blue lagoons and distinct landscapes from above. On all its flights from Papeete to Bora Bora, Air Tahiti operates with an open seating policy, allowing passengers to choose their desired seats.

For an awe-inspiring view of the islands upon arrival in Bora Bora, try to secure a window seat on the left side of the aircraft (when boarding from the rear). These seats offer a stunning panoramic view of the islands, including Tahaa, Huahine, Raiatea, and the beautiful Bora Bora itself, as you approach the airport.

There are only twelve window seats on the left side of ATR-42 aircraft and nineteen on ATR-72, so make sure to arrive at the airport early enough to ensure you’re in the front of the boarding queue.

If you happen to be seated on the right side of the aircraft, don’t fret. You can still take in the sights of Maupiti and Tetriaroa in the distance. Upon landing, the plane will make a U-turn, providing you with a fleeting yet up-close view of the breathtaking Mt. Otemanu and the Bora Bora island just before you land.

When leaving Bora Bora, sit on the right side for your last glimpse of the island.

Please note that wind conditions may occasionally necessitate a change in the flight path. This may result in a landing approach from a different direction. During the boarding, just ask the flight crew which side of the plane will provide the best views.

Get Multi-Island Pass to save on flights

Air Tahiti offers Multi-Island Passes for travelers who wish to explore multiple islands within the same archipelago, offering special, discounted fares.

For example, Bora Bora Pass allows flying to the islands of Moorea, Huahine, Raiatea, Bora Bora, and Maupiti and costs €434.90/€469.30 (low season/high season).

The Air Tahiti Pass is valid for 28 days.

The cheapest time to fly to Bora Bora

The shoulder season – April, May and November – tends to be the best time to fly to Bora Bora. It combines the best weather and rates for flights and accommodation due to lower demand. The tropical weather is pleasantly warm, and there are fewer tourists as the vacationers from Europe and America are waiting for the summer season.

The low season – from December to March (excluding days around Christmas and New Year) – is definitely the cheapest time to fly to Bora Bora. if you’re looking to travel on a tight budget, don’t mind the unpredictable rainy season and hot and humid weather, you will be rewarded with the lowest airfares and hotel prices. Additionally, flying on midweek days is usually cheaper than weekend travel.

The high tourist season in Bora Bora starts in June and lasts until the end of October. These are the busiest months in Bora Bora when the weather is dryer, there is less humidity in the air, and water temperatures are cooler. Get ready for tourist crowds and sky-high prices for flights and hotels. If you plan to visit Bora Bora during these months, it is essential to book well ahead (at least 9 months in advance).

Know your time zone

When checking flights and airport transfer times, ensure you know the local time zones. The departure/arrival times on your plane ticket and boarding pass are based on the time zone of the departure/arrival airport – this also applies to the connecting (layover) airports.

French Polynesia spans across the Pacific Ocean and includes multiple islands, each with its own unique geography and longitude. To accommodate this, this French overseas territory uses three separate time zones to reflect the local time on each island accurately: Tahiti Time Zone (UTC-10), Marquesas Islands Time Zone (UTC-9:30) and Gambier Islands Time Zone (UTC-9). These time zones do not have an associated daylight saving time.

Bora Bora observes Tahiti Time Zone (UTC-10) all year. As a result, clocks in Bora Bora are 21 hours behind Sydney, 10 hours behind London and 5 hours behind New York.

When you board the plane, adjust your watch to the local time of the destination – subconsciously orienting yourself to the new time will help you to reduce the jetlag a bit.

Last-minute flights to Bora Bora. The real cost of convenience.

Last-minute flights are often touted as a great way to save money, but the reality is far from it. Booking last-minute flights to Bora Bora almost always never works out. The convenience of being able to book a flight on the fly is a dangerous game of chance, and you will most likely end up paying significantly higher than booking in advance.

Last-minute flight cost spike
Late booking penalty: The flight prices rise as departure draws near. Last-minute flights are almost always more expensive than booking in advance.

The common perception may be that airlines decrease ticket prices to fill empty seats as the departure date approaches. However, the truth is that airfares depend on demand. Based on years of research and current customer data, the airlines know what people are willing to pay for specific flights and dates. They are also well aware that people are willing to pay a premium for flights they need to take immediately. To make the most money, the airline will sell its cheapest fares first and then increase the prices right before the flight to take advantage of business travelers and others who are willing to pay the premium price for late booking.

Occasionally, airlines can put some seats on sale to fill the remaining seats, but these are for unusual times and unpopular places. Popular destinations and dates around peak travel times tend to sell out quickly.

Planning ahead is key to securing a good deal on your flight. Last-minute flight deals are hard to come by, so as soon as you have a tentative travel timeline, book your flight. The earlier you book, the more likely you are to save money. If you are looking for a good deal, the best time to book your flight to Bora Bora is 2-8 months before the takeoff.

Looking for the best deals for Bora Bora? Check different departure airports.

“Hot seats” on long-haul flights

Those days seat selection is considered an optional, extra paid service – seats with extra legroom (front and exit rows) are usually priced higher. However, if you’re about to take a long-haul flight to Bora Bora, those “hot seats” are worth considering – expect to pay $50-$100, which is much less than upgrading to Premium Economy.

If you want to choose your seats, do this early (ideally during the booking) for a more extensive selection of available options.

Booking group flights to Bora Bora

Flights are cheaper when purchased in bulk rather than as individual tickets. Booking group flights to Bora Bora can be a cost-effective option for a school trip, family reunion, or corporate group traveling to a conference.

To qualify for the special group rate, the group must usually have at least 10 passengers. Discounts depend on the airline, group size, and travel dates, and typically range from 5% to 20% off the regular airfare.

Airlines and flight search websites typically limit automatic group bookings to 10 passengers. This limit reflects the complexity of managing larger groups, which require personalized service and more time to coordinate. To get the price quote for your group, you’ll need to contact the airline or a travel agent directly.

If you’re open to different airlines or want more personalized service, a travel agent may be a better choice. Travel agents may have access to discounted group rates to Bora Bora and can help with logistics and scheduling.

Proof of onward travel – a simple hack

Travelers who go on long trips often don’t have a set itinerary and fly on one-way tickets. The problem? For many APAC countries, proof of onward travel is a legal requirement. If you arrive at the airport without an onward ticket (from French Polynesia to another country), you’ll either be forced to buy one online or forbidden from boarding the plane altogether.

The cheapest solution? Renting an onward ticket! Use the websites such as OneWayFly or OnwardTicket to get a flight reservation for a limited amount of time (usually 2 to 14 days). They work by actually booking you on a real flight out of French Polynesia and giving you a confirmable flight reservation with a PNR (Passenger Name Record) under your name. After the time limit, your spot on the flight is automatically canceled. Such “temporary tickets” tend to cost anywhere from $10 to $20.
