French Polynesia is composed of 118 islands located in 4 different archipelagos. The Society Islands (the Windward Islands and the Leeward Islands,), the Tuamotu-Gambier Islands, the Austral Islands and the Marquesas Islands.

These islands are spread over a large area such as Europe and not all are equipped with an aerodrome. French Polynesia has four 4 state aerodromes (Tahiti-Faa’a, Raiatea, Rangiroa, Bora Bora), 36 territorial airports, a military airfield (Moruroa) and 8 private airfields.

Every year Air Archipels accumulates nearly 3000 hours of flight and is able to serve 40 airfields of French Polynesia in optimal conditions, securely and comfortably. Depending on the destination, flight times can last from a couple of minutes up to 3.5 hours. Flights are carried out with permanent concern for safety and comfort.

BORA BORA

Bora Bora

Bora-Bora est formé d’un volcan éteint, entouré par un lagon et une frange de récif. Son point culminant est le mont Otemanu (727 m) situé au centre de l’atoll ; un autre sommet, le mont Pahia, lui aussi situés sur l’île principale, atteint 661 m.

Localisée à environ 255 km au nord-ouest de Tahiti, cette île de l’archipel de la Société est de dimensions assez réduites : l’île principale ne mesure que 8 km du nord au sud et 5 km d’est en ouest ; la superficie totale de Bora-Bora, îlots compris, est inférieure à 40 km².
