Our History

In 1996, Air Tahiti Nui was founded to connect the world to one of the world’s great treasures, the islands of Tahiti. Our fleet of five Airbus A340-300s provides service to Tahiti from Paris, Los Angeles, Auckland and Tokyo. With partnership and codeshare agreements, we’ve extended that route network to include 39 major cities around the world, including Sydney and New York.

As a Tahitian face to the rest of the world, Air Tahiti Nui takes enormous care to demonstrate the hospitality, beauty and relaxed nature of the nation’s people in every detail of the airline.

A greeting that includes a warm smile and beautiful white-petal Tiare, a cabin crew that changes from sleek city uniforms to elegant and comfortable Tahitian attire shortly after take-off, service that is both attentive and unassuming and enthusiasm from all its staff to do whatever it takes to make passengers feel relaxed and satisfied.
