Air Moana has yet to confirm their baggage policies, keep checking back to see updated information.
Air Moana hasn't yet published its cabin baggage policy. However, it is likely that you will be permitted to bring a cabin bag onboard with you, as the aircraft are regional aircraft this may be a small personal item instead of a cabin case. However, it is assumed that nearer the launch more information will be provided.
Similarly, the airline hasn't published its checked luggage policy either. It is unsure as of yet if this will be included in your ticket or if it will be at an additional cost.
The exact classes onboard Air Moana flights has not yet been announced however, it's likely that there will be an Economy and perhaps Business Class onboard.
As the airline is still in the planning phase and hasn't officially begun services it is unclear how they will design the cabin and what kind of products will be offered. However, it is highly likely that an economy class product will be installed on the aircraft with an economy service provided. However, once launched, more information will be readily available.
It is unclear if the airline will offer business class. As the intended fleet will be smaller regional aircraft, a business class product may not be installed onboard, however, this is still not confirmed.
Methods of check-in have yet to be confirmed by the airline.
At present, Air Moana hasn't launched an e-commerce or reservations website, so it is unsure if online check-in will be an option.
It is expected that the airline will have airport check-in facilities in all of their destinations for you to use. Depending on the route you may be required to arrive at the airport a set amount of time before departure.
Air Moana hasn't yet published whether they will offer complimentary drinks or snacks yet. However, as the flights are due to initially be domestic island-hop flights this is unlikely. A buy onboard service may be provided.
As the airline will be operating short island-hop flights it isn't likely that they will have wifi or inflight entertainment installed. The airline may offer an inflight magazine to read at the seat pockets. However, to avoid boredom during the flight we would recommend you bring something to keep you busy for your flight.
Once launched the airline plans on operating services across French Polynesia to the following destinations. The airline plans to operate to 12 destinations from April before later adding a further 9 routes to make a route map of 21 destinations.
