Resumption of Air Tahiti Nui commercial flights

Air Tahiti Nui is pleased to announce the official resumption of its commercial flights after the last territorial continuity flight departing from Paris-CDG, scheduled on July 2, 2020.

First and foremost, Air Tahiti Nui and its teams wish to thank the customers and partners who supported us during this difficult time and who are waiting to be able to get back to their loved ones, restart their activities and welcome travellers to our islands again.   
This resumption will be gradual and will be subject to several conditions relating to health measures, to the reopening of some borders and to travel demands, which will inevitably be affected by this crisis.

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

- Flights from Papeete are scheduled on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 23.50 p.m. local time, transit via Vancouver.

- Flights from Paris-CDG are scheduled on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 12.05 p.m. local time, transit via Vancouver.

From July 13, there will be an additional frequency on Tuesday for Papeete-Paris route and on Monday for Paris-Papeete route, bringing the number of frequencies to 5 flights per week.

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:
From July 14, Air Tahiti Nui will operate 3 to 4 flights per week to and from Los Angeles.


Papeete - Auckland – Papeete route:
Tentatively we hope to reopen this route in November 2020 however this will be subject to the agreement of the New Zealand Government. Air Tahiti Nui invites you to regularly consult our website to learn about the latest news.

Flights are not expected to recommence before November 2020.
