Pets in the Cabin
Small dogs and cats can travel in the cabin with Air Tahiti if the combined weight of your pet and carrier does not exceed 17 lbs (8 kg). Fido can only weigh a maximum of 11 lbs (5 kg) without the carrier to qualify for transport. 2 small animals can travel together in the same carrier if they remain under the combined weight limit. Pets must remain inside their carrier for the duration of the flight. The pet fee is $150 on flights from LA to/from Paris each way; 14,000 XPF on flights from Papeete to LA; and 24,000 XPF on flights from Papeete to Paris.
Pets in Cargo
Larger pets who exceed the limits to travel in the cabin may be accepted for transport as cargo instead. To find out if Fido qualifies for travel as cargo, you can contact the Atlantic Office at (800) 280-8344. Alternatively, they offer a feedback form on their website for customers looking to transport animals as freight.
For pets traveling in the cabin, carriers must not exceed the dimensions of 16" x 14" x 8" (40 cm x 35 cm x 20 cm).
If you have a recognized emotional support animal, you can transport them in the cabin free of charge on Air Tahiti Nui flights.
