Seats can often be reserved at a discount through Orbitz.com.
Parking at the Fa'a'? International Airport
Fa'a'? International Airport provides two parking lots for the short- and long-term parking needs of its customers. The first hour of short-term parking in the P1 lot is about $2, with no charges if parked for less than 10 minutes. After the first hour, the hourly parking rate falls, until reaching the maximum 24-hour charge of around $15. Prices for the P2 long-term lot are similar, with 10 free minutes followed by falling rates beginning at about $2 an hour. The maximum daily rate for the long-term lot is around $10 a day.
Transportation to Fa'a'? International Airport
Transportation to the airport from the city is primarily by airport shuttle bus or taxi. The bus travels along the west coast freeway, ending at a bus stop located in front of the airport's main terminal. Taxis can be taken from the town center to the airport for around $10.
A Meal before Leaving Papeete
Papeete has several restaurants and pubs that serve a wide variety of the unique blend of French and Polynesian food for which the area is known. Morrison's café is a good place for a last taste of the region, dished up quickly if you're in a hurry to catch one of the cheap flights from Papeete. For a more leisurely and elegant meal, however, L'o a la Bouche would better serve, though only lunch and dinners are available.
