The airline’s main hub is located at Rarotonga International Airport, the international gateway to the Cook Islands. With its focus on safety, reliability, and exceptional service, Air Rarotonga has established itself as a trusted carrier for both domestic and international routes.
Air Rarotonga operates flights within the Cook Islands, connecting the capital island of Rarotonga with other islands such as Aitutaki, Atiu, Mangaia, and Mauke among others. The airline also offers international services, including a popular route between Rarotonga and Papeete in Tahiti.
