Air Tahiti is the regional airline that operates within the islands of French Polynesia. Their flight network covers 47 islands within French Polynesia, plus Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. This covers an area about the same size as Europe. Since this is the airline that takes you from one island to another, their cabin luggage rules are more restrictive than most standard airlines. Air Tahiti operates a fleet of 7 ATR-72s, 2 ATR-42s, 2 Twin Otter DHC6-300s, and 3 Beechcraft King Air B200s, all of which are small planes. Therefore most of your luggage will have to be checked and go in the hold of the plane. Read below to make sure you know how much you can bring as carry on luggage.
