Tahiti easing up

Understand local lockdown finished on the 24th May - all businesses open, resumption of inter-island travel. Maybe some restrictions on wining & dining after dark (?)

Plan is to restart international flights around 1st July - probably only Air Tahiti Nue to start with - still working on regulations but will almost certainly require a test to see if you have the Covid plus temperature checks.

No deaths and not many cases but widespread economic issues

If they're only flying south and east they could be part of the Trans-Tasman bubble, but if they head north and are going to hot spots like France and the US, they won't be welcome. Decisions, decisions

I believe they're looking closely at both options. Over 5000 people are out of a job in the tourist trade and Bora Bora especially is very hard hit economically.

For obvious reasons they'll want a flight to Paris fairly soon - possible running via the French West Indies again to avoid the USA but if it's tourists they want then the major sources are the USA (circa 46%), France (30%), EU (13%) - Japan, NZ and Australia only provide 4-5% each
