Planning to bring an additional or oversized baggage on your next flight?

No more worries, bring it all with you! As a Club Tiare member, you can redeem your miles for an extra baggage award whether you are at the entry level Tahia or the highest tier level of the program.








Important: If your itinerary includes a connecting flight, you cannot redeem your miles for an extra baggage award.
Each airline has its own extra baggage policy; you can purchase an extra baggage for your itinerary on day of departure.


The standard baggage allowance for any Air Tahiti Nui flight is 1 piece of 10kg as hand luggage in cabin and 1 piece of checked luggage of 23Kg when travelling in Economy class or 2 pieces of 32kg in Business Class. If you are a Silver or Gold tier level member, you are allowed an extra checked piece of luggage subject to the weight and size allowance of your travelling class. Entry level Tahia members are not allowed to check-in a second piece of luggage for free.

Please be aware that extra baggage awards are arranged on Air Tahiti Nui operated flight only and per one-way. If you want extra baggage on your roundtrip we recommend you make arrangements before your departure. Forgot to make the arrangements at time of booking? No problem…you can redeem your miles at the airport on day of departure.

After the award is issued, it needs to be used on the flight it has been requested. Refund and change for a different routing is not permitted. For all awards, special terms and conditions apply. Check the Club Tiare terms and general conditions before redeeming your miles.

When required, fuel surcharge, airport and security taxes are not covered by your miles and must be paid separately at time of award issuance. Service fee is free for our frequent flyer members’ award issuance. If you need more information, you can speak with someone at the Air Tahiti Nui contact center.
