PAPE‘ETE, Tahiti, French Polynesia (June 16, 2002 – Tahitipresse)---The Assembly of French Polynesia passed two bills Thursday that are related to international flights at Tahiti-Faa'a International Airport.

The new bills authorize the government of French Polynesia to award or deny landing rights at the airport to international airlines.

This right comes as a result of French Polynesia's 1996 autonomy statute, said majority MPs.

However, similar bills passed earlier by the Assembly of French Polynesia were voided by the Pape‘ete administrative court in March 2002.

The new bills provide that airlines are to give to the government information about "routes, stopovers, planes used and the number of weekly flights."

Airlines will also have to give details about their fares.
