Fa'a'ā International Airport is relatively small. Air Tahiti has flights every day going to all the other islands in French Polynesia while international flights go to countries such as France, Japan, the United States, or New Zealand. The airport is on Tahiti which is an island among the Windward Islands: the eastern part of the Society Islands. Mo'orea can be seen across the Pacific Ocean and Mount Tohive'a is a major mountain on Mo'orea. Because of limited level terrain, rather than leveling large stretches of sloping agricultural land, the airport is built primarily on reclaimed land on the coral reef just off-shore.
The Papeete was a schooner built in 1891 by Matthew Turner, a San Francisco Bay Area shipbuilder who had extensive business interests in Tahiti. The ship was known for a fast passage from San Francisco to Tahiti of 17 days.
She was built to serve in the packet trade, as was the similarly named barquentineCity of Papeete.
