The Islands of Tahiti are picture perfects dots of tropical bliss known around the world for their emerald green peaks, turquoise lagoons, swaying palms and underwater wonders.  Whilst it’s true that these paradise isles are a long way from the runway at Heathrow, we promise that every hour in the air is worth it! With regular connections from Los Angeles, Seattle, Tokyo, Auckland and Paris, the journey has been made easier and more comfortable than ever before thanks to the fabulous fleet and in-flight service offered by the nation’s award-winning airline, Air Tahiti Nui.

Read our review of Air Tahiti Nui below and discover the features that make their fleet and dreamliner planes so special.

Air Tahiti Nui’s Fleet: Plane Names & Where They Fly

The airline’s fleet of Dreamliners offers more than just a means to reach this South Pacific paradise. Each aircraft tells the story of the islands, bringing to life the rich culture and vibrant colours of this island nation. Named after three beautiful islands and a famous Polynesian navigator, the fleet is comprised of Tetiaroa – home to The Brando, Fakarava – a diver’s paradise in the Tuamotu Islands and Bora Borathe iconic island famed for her majestic peak and turquoise lagoon as well as Tupaia – a remarkable navigator from the 1700s who joined Captain James Cook as a guide on his voyages.

On Board Experience & Air Tahiti Nui’s Dreamliner Plane Layout

Matching the expanse of The Islands of Tahiti, a sense of space begins the moment you board Air Tahiti Nui’s Dreamliners, thanks to the high ceilings, wide body and largest cabin windows in the skies. Cabins are fresh, bright and airy, giving passengers a taste of the Tahitian islands whilst flying, and setting the scene for what’s to come! The colour scheme is inspired by the lagoons, the ocean and the blue skies of Tahiti, and the fabulous livery showcases the culture and heritage of the islands. The art of tattooing began in Tahiti, and so each Dreamliner is beautifully decorated with tattooed images of manta rays, whales, waves and Tahiti’s national flower, the sweet-scented Tiare.

Travel to Tahiti in Style

The 3-class configuration provides a range of seating to suit all travellers. Poerava Business features flatbed seats in a 2-2-2 configuration which suits couples far better than the 1-2-1 configuration favoured by other airlines. A wonderful addition to the airline’s seating range is Moana Premium featuring a very comfortable cradle seat that reclines 20cm, with a footrest for enhanced relaxation. With just 32 seats across 5 rows, this cabin provides a great upgrade option. Ask your consultant for more details and a tailormade quotation.
