Air Tahiti Nui was founded in 1996 to connect the world to one of its greatest treasures, the Islands of Tahiti.
We’ve selected what we believe to be the best aircraft flying the skies, the Boeing 787-9, and we’ve made it uniquely Tahitian. Aptly named the ‘Tahitian Dreamliner’ you have the choice of flying Moana Economy, Moana Premium Economy or Poerava Business.
With Air Tahiti Nui, your holiday is a journey that begins the moment you board our Tahitian Dreamliner. Receive a greeting that includes a warm smile and beautiful white-petal Tiare. Then, shortly after take-off your cabin crew will change from sleek city uniforms to elegant and comfortable Tahitian attire. From there you will receive service that is both attentive, unassuming and enthusiastic from our award-winning team.
The meals we provide are an integral part of setting the stage. Our chefs have considered every detail and developed dishes that will add to, and complement, the rich sensory experience that awaits. Combined with our wine list, that reflects our French history, these tastes are meant to reinforce the vividness of your travel.
Onboard, once you settle in, you will enjoy the latest Panasonic 3X3 entertainment system. The individual high-definition touch screens in front of each seat will give you access to a wide selection of on-demand content.
Our hard work has earned us several of the travel industry's most prestigious awards. Air Tahiti Nui was crowned a “Five Star Major Airline” by APEX in 2019 and won “Best Seat Comfort in the South Pacific Region” at the APEX 2020 Regional Passenger Choice Award. Air Tahiti Nui was also elected one of the "World's Best Airlines" by the magazine Travel + Leisure (2008, 2011 and 2012), and named “Best Leisure Airline 2019” as well as "Best Airline in the South Pacific" by the readers of Global Traveler (2011, 2012, 2015, 2018, and 2019).
Getting to the Islands of Tahiti from Australia is easy! Our codeshare partner airline, Qantas, operates flights from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne to Auckland, and from there Air Tahiti Nui operates a non-stop service between Auckland and Papeete, Tahiti. We also operate flights to Papeete from Paris, Los Angeles, and Tokyo.
