Based at Pepeete, Air Tahiti Nui predominantly offers long haul flights to a range of destinations including Paris, Tokyo, Auckland and Los Angeles. The company was established in late 1996, and is French owned and run.
The airline was created with the specific remit of developing tourism to Tahiti, hence its regular flights to Europe, America and the Far East. It has a fleet size of just 5 planes, but a growing importance for the economy and development of the country. It is soon to replace and modernise its entire fleet, with new aircraft scheduled to arrive in 2018.
The airline also has a developing reputation for its customer care, with a wide range of multicultural shopping, entertainment and dining experiences available during flights.
