Back on Air Tahiti Brand new fleet of ATR 72-600 on our flight to Fakarava and back.
Friendly check in in Faaa airport. and great flight witn Tetiaroa on the right, Makatea ( on the left ) to stop over on Rangiroa ( seat on the right to see the pass after takeoff ) and then Fakarava.
Great flight, very friendly staff on board and the always welcome cool pineapple juice offering during the flight !
Luggage delivery is quite a challenge in that small airport, be ready to elbow your way.
I hope that the airline reads Trip Advisor and somehow put pressure to the country to up keep the terminal. For this Top world diving destination, the facilities are under par of what one would expect. so much for a first and last impression.....
The bathrooms were lacking running water to wash your hands after using the toilet , No snack bar ( especially useful for those who have schlepped over an hour and a half by boat to come from the south side of the atoll.
