The fleet revamp will coincide with the airline’s 20th anniversary.
“We are very excited to partner with Boeing to deliver the very latest innovations in comfort and technology to our global customers. The new fleet investment will help future-proof travel to and from the Islands of Tahiti, and assist the acceleration in visitor growth,” said Air Tahiti Nui’s chairman, Michel Monvoisin.
Dinesh Keskar, Boeing’s senior vice president of sales for Asia Pacific & India, added that the new aircraft, which feature larger windows, would offer passengers “a commanding view of the horizon above beautiful Tahiti”.
At present, Air Tahiti Nui operates a fleet of five 296-seat, two-class A340-300 aircraft on routes connecting the French Polynesian capital, Papeete, with international gateway cities including Auckland, Los Angeles, Paris and Tokyo.
The Dreamliner order is expected to be confirmed in the coming months.
