Get ready to fly high in The Islands of Tahiti as a new private seaplane company launches this month. After years spent in maritime transportation in the region, the Degage family has launched the commercial Tahiti Air Charter – becoming the first French seaplane airline in 50 years.

Based in Raiatea, which is just 20 minutes from Bora Bora by plane, Tahiti Air Charter will offer flights and day tours over and around Bora Bora and the Society Islands. Plans for the Charter includes private inter-island charters, flights over Bora Bora and Tupai (the heart-shaped island), and full-day excursions to discover more hidden islands including Taha’a and Maupiti.

With a capacity of 8 passengers and the ability to land on both land and water, the Cessna 208 caravan amphibian used by Tahiti Air Charter is known as one of the quietest in its class. The ideal transport for a perfect and exclusive getaway in The Islands of Tahiti, Tahiti Air Charter flights will provide security, comfort and modernity.

With water landing areas mainly located in the Society Islands, the objective of Tahiti Air Charter is to expand this capacity and its air fleet in order to serve the sustainable development of tourism in French Polynesia.
