Transportation from Papeete City Center to Faa'a International Airport
Tahiti's main airport, Faa'a Airport, is located very close to the city center of Papeete. The easiest way to get to Papeete Airport from the center is taxis, although they are more expensive than buses.
It can be difficult to find a taxi on the street after 6 pm, but there are two taxi stands by the sea in Papeete city centre. Although the prices are fixed and determined by the state, it is useful to confirm the fare to the airport before taking a taxi. After 8:30 p.m., prices increase by a few dollars.
Credit cards are not valid in taxis. You have to pay the driver in cash. As a precaution for drivers who are coy about change, make sure to have coins with you. In order to avoid all kinds of negative situations, write down the license plate of the taxi you take in a corner. Taxis can depart from in front of hotels as well as from fixed stops. However, the best guarantee is to call a taxi from the reception of a hotel.
To get to Papeete Airport by bus from Papeete city center, you need to take the number 3 or 7 from Rue du Marechal FOCH Street. Don't forget to tell the driver that you will be getting off at the airport because Papeete Airport is not the last stop.
You can get more information about buses, which are the most economical way to go from Papeete city center to the airport, from the official website or application of the bus company.
Le Truck, Tahiti's famous airy and wooden public transport vehicle, no longer operates, replaced by city buses operated by the municipality. Cash payments are made to the driver in city buses. Credit cards are not valid on buses.
Since this bus does not only run on the airport route, it can be busy during the day. If you are fond of your comfort, this option may not make you completely happy.
Tour companies also provide airport transfers, as most tourists to Tahiti come by tour. If you want, you can include Papeete Airport transfer in your tour package, or you can also contact tu companies and arrange a private transfer from Papeete city center to Faa'a Airport.
