Sending cargo with Air Tahiti

Air Tahiti offers you two ways of sending your goods:


Standard cargo:

Your goods will be sent on the first flight with available cargo capacity, within a deadline that will be stated on your air waybill (AWB).

Premium cargo:

If you want your goods to travel on a specific flight or date, you will need to make a "Premium cargo" booking and will be charged accordingly.

The nature of some cargo means booking is required for transport by air. This applies to:

  • live animals,
  • firearms,
  • valuable items.

Calculate my rate

The cost of sending your cargo is calculated by multiplying the total chargeable weight* of your goods by the rate per kilogram, which varies according to your destination, the weight of your cargo and the type of dispatch requested.

* Total chargeable weight is the total weight of your goods, rounded down for weights of between X.1 and X.4 kg, and rounded up for weights of between X.5 and X.9 kg.
e.g. If your goods weigh 12.4 kg, the total chargeable weight will be 12 kg. If your goods weigh 5.5 kg, the total chargeable weight will be 6 kg.

Discounted rates are offered above 10 kg (22 lb). The heavier your cargo, the lower the rate per kg. This means you can get up to a 25% discount on your cargo price.
