Bora Bora airport

Find out all you need to know about Bora Bora airport: location, transfers, aircraft parking, refueling, equipments available …


The Bora Bora airport is located on a motu (Motu Mute), so you will need to take a boat to get from the airport to your final destination.
Most of Bora Bora's luxury hotels provide their own transport between airport and hotel. However, Air Tahiti can provide a shuttle boat service for passengers, aboard the "Bora Bora Navette".
