Maeva - Welcome
We offer daily non-stop service to Tahiti from Paris and Los Angeles as well as convenient flights to Seattle, Auckland and Tokyo. With our code share partners SNCF rail in France, American Airlines in the USA and Qantas in Australia, we link to over 39 other cities including Sydney, New York and Marseilles.
Our fresh and dynamic crew make our passengers feel like they are already in Tahiti as soon as they step on board. The smile and generosity of our teams, the elegant and refined design of the cabins, the sound of ukulele, and the fragrance of the Tiare flower that is offered with our traditional «Maeva», the Tahitian word for welcome, are some of the tokens of friendliness that we extend. They demonstrate the human and uniquely Tahitian part of our character.
Air Tahiti Nui connects the rest of the world to the island of Tahiti and offers daily flights to Paris, Los Angeles and Tahiti.
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). With the renewal of its fleet, the airline was awarded "Best New Livery 2018" in the TheDesignAir Awards.
When you step on board Air Tahiti Nui, you'll be transported to the charm of the French Polynesian islands.
Our cabins create a relaxing environment reflecting the culture, allure and natural splendor of Polynesia. The cabins' colors evoke the sensations you'll experience when arriving in Tahiti: the warmth of the woods, the intensity of the ocean and lagoons, the luminosity of the islands, and the freshness of the lush foliage. It's our pleasure to extend our traditional Tahitian hospitality to make you feel welcome and at home and in Tahiti when you fly with us.
The Air Tahiti Nui fleet, initially comprised of Airbus A340-300 planes, was renewed on the airline's 20th anniversary. The new Tahitian Dreamliners are Boeing 787-9s. They are spacious and comfortable, with 294 seats divided into three classes. The planes also feature an advanced entertainment system and on-board Wi-Fi. Tahitian Dreamliners are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, and carefully designed to maximize passenger comfort on long-haul flights.
Air Tahiti Nui holds the IOSA registration, the IATA Operational Safety Audit - today's most accepted and recognized operational audit standard,
delivered by the International Air Transport Association.
This registration, renewed every two years, verifies that all procedures are deemed indispensable in terms of flight safety. We also factor in the specifics of operating in the US in terms of safety, freight, immigration procedures and assistance to reduced mobility passengers.
Air Tahiti Nui benefits from Lufthansa Technik Industry's expertise in maintenance program design and works exclusively with specialists approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
