Booking and tickets - Modif cancellation and refund

  Information to be provided to passengers in case of time changes made by Air Tahiti 

In view of the different parties involved, the following procedures set out the distribution of roles for passenger notification.


When the change occurs before D-2 : the PNRs concerned are automatically queued back to the agency handling the booking. It is the agency's responsibility to notify the customer of the time change or to see that they are informed by their inbound agency.

When the change occurs before D-2: the PNRs concerned are automatically queued back to the agency handling the booking and an automatic notification is sent to both the email adress and phone number in PNR.

When the change occurs on D-Day, or on the weekends and public holidays: Air Tahiti will notify the passenger, provided there is a contact number in French Polynesia on the booking file and the booking agency (or inbound agency) has not already done so.

Air Tahiti cannot be held responsible should the absence of a contact in PNR or the insertion of a mistaken contact result in a missed flight situation.

  Modification of booking at the passenger's request after arrival in Polynesia. 

Any modifications made during agency working hours are handled by the agency which created the booking (or the inbound agency). At weekends and on public holidays, they are handled by Air Tahiti staff. In all cases, refer to the pricing note for the fare concerned. For the rules on pass fare modification, please view the Air Tahiti Air Passes page.
