Air Tahiti special cargo packaging

The packaging of your goods is your responsibility. It needs to be solid enough to protect the contents and designed so that packaging and contents do not damage other cargo.


We would remind you that our aircraft holds are not containerised, which means your packaging needs to be robust enough to withstand contact with other cargo during transport.

To make life easier for you, Air Tahiti sells a range of special packaging at Tahiti-Faa'a Airport.

If you are staying on an island other than Tahiti, packaging can be ordered. Please phone your local airport for details.
