From Faa'a International Airport (PPT) in Papeete, Tahiti, it's just an additional 45-minute domestic flight to Bora Bora Mote Mute Airport (BOB) via Air Tahiti (four to six flights available daily).
At the airport in Bora Bora, guests are greeted by Four Seasons personnel. Staff handles your luggage, which will be placed in your room upon arrival. Guests are escorted to one of the Resort’s custom Andreyale yachts, for a scenic 15-minute transfer to Four Seasons (fees apply).
Upon arrival in Papeete, all passengers and private aircraft clear customs before continuing to Bora Bora. For entry into French Polynesia, all guests are required to have a valid passport and an outbound ticket. As entry requirements and customs regulations are subject to change without notice, please consult the appropriate authorities before travelling internationally.
Your island experience begins before your plane touches down. The approach into Bora Bora's airport offers passengers breathtaking views of the island – with its primeval peaks, deep blue lagoon and necklace of white-fringed motus (coral islets).
At the airport
You will be greeted at the airport by the warm, welcoming smiles of our Four Seasons personnel. Guiding you through the arrival process, your Four Seasons contact can help coordinate your luggage transfer and direct you to the boat, which will be waiting to take you to the Resort. During the 15-minute cruise to the Resort, relax with one of the on-board magazines, or look overboard to watch the fish and manta rays that inhabit the waters. Fee applies for round-trip airport transfers.
