SAS Natireva, trading as Air Moana is a Polynesian airline scheduled to launch services in 2022. The airline plans on operating island-hop flights across French Polynesia initially starting with 6 destinations within the "free-trade zone" after being requested to do so by the Polynesian government.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 hasn't formally launched yet, information on frequent flyer programs hasn't yet been publicised.
The airline plans to have a fleet of 3 ATR72 aircraft and 2 ATR42 upon launch. However, as the airline grows and expands its network it also plans on taking delivery of 3 more ATR72 as well as 2 more ATR42.
