Baggage storage at Tahiti-Faa'a Airport

We are considering using baggage storage at the PPT airport before checking in to fly back to the USA (I hear the Air Tahiti Airlines counter does not open until 8pm). Does anyone have any information on how the bag storage works in Tahiti?

Is it a coin locker?

Approx. how much money does the lockers cost?

How big is the locker?

Do they fill up quickly - availability wise?

Are there Airlines that offers baggage storage at the airport?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

No you pay up front it is like 10 USD or something like that to store it and you need to pick up by 9 pm or something as such.

The baggage storage is a large room with an attendant. None of the airlines serving Tahiti have lockers. The luggage storage is now located in the main Terminal Building. I couldn't find any fee chart on the internet but the hours are listed.

They charge per piece and also by size, but for us it is easy and so worth it. Just be back to the airport before 9, like others mentioned that is when they close.
