The net return for French Polynesia's international carrier was less than half of what it was in 2015 but the carrier remained profitable for a fifth consecutive year.

The airline had a slight drop in revenue to just under $US350 million despite a 1.4 percent increase in passenger numbers.

It said it carried 480,000 passengers who accounted for 71 percent of the territory's market.

The airline's load factor was over 76 percent.
