Resumption of Air Tahiti Nui commercial flights

Air Tahiti Nui resumed flying commercial flights between Papeete-Paris and Papeete-Los Angeles on 13 July 2020 with a modified schedule.  The gradual resumption of flights is subject to several conditions relating to health measures, the reopening of some borders, and to travel demands.

Papeete - Auckland – Papeete route:
We plan to reopen this route from 31 March 2021 with two flights per week. The first flight departing from Auckland to Papeete will be TN102 on Thursday 01 April 2021. 

Potentially we could operate adhoc cargo flights with the opportunity to carry repatriation passengers.  These adhoc flights will be operated without any notice so if you wish to register your interest to travel on one of these flights please send an email to or telephone +64 (9) 869 6840.  Please advise your name, passport details, contact information, preferred travel itinerary and ideal travel period.


Papeete - Paris – Papeete route:
Conditions of entry to the United States remain uncertain so the Papeete-Paris-Papeete schedule will continue to operate via Vancouver, Canada instead of Los Angeles, USA.

Travellers must obtain an electronic travel authorisation to be able to transit to Vancouver (YVR). The authorisation request must be made at the earliest before departure. To apply for eTA, click here.


Papeete - Los Angeles – Papeete route:
Air Tahiti Nui is currently operating non-stop flights between Papeete and Los Angeles.



Papeete - Tokyo – Papeete route:
Our Tokyo service will resume from 01 April 2021 with one flight per week.
