20 mins connection inter-island

I am flying from Papetee to Huahine. One of the options from the Air Tahiti airline website is with one stop, connecting in Raiatea. However, the connection time is only 20 mins! I think it is too short but want to see if anyone has done that and can share some insights.

Flight number VT 374, leaving Papetee @ 7:45am, arriving Raiatea @ 8:30am

Connecting the flight to Huahine @ 8:50am.

Do we need to get off the plane in Raiatea, or we can actually stay in the plane so there is no need to worry about the 20 mins connection stress?

It will not be a problem at all; simply stay on the plane. Chances are it will be less than 20 minutes too...

Air Tahiti is very efficient and many times will arrive and depart earlier than scheduled. Why of why can't US airlines learn from them. ;)
