Air Tahiti Nui reveals a new look

The airline's new look includes a rejigged logo and new brand identity focused on the ubiquitous Tiare flower, which has been long synonymous with Air Tahiti Nui and the islands of Tahiti themselves. Now more sophisticated and modern looking, the flower in the airline’s logo was crafted by famed Tahitian artist Alex Lee. The artistic flare of the new logo exudes a confident and established feel. Future Brand, an agency that specializes in brand creation and transformation, was tapped to create the new logo and branding. The agency’s past work includes designing the new American Airlines brand as well as the new brand of The Islands of Tahiti for the Tourism board of French Polynesia. Alongside the new look, Air Tahiti Nui is refreshing its positioning, values, and personality to be centered on the experiential Polynesian nature of “Mana.”

Founder of Air Vanuatu attempts to set up new airline to compete with Air Tahiti

Four months ago, Bill Ravel, a New Caledonia-based businessman lodged an application to set up a new airline, called Islands, to compete against Air Tahiti. The new company has told Tahiti-infos that it has received no official reply and now wants the court to formalise the apparent rejection. It also said that there was no legal obstacle to be issued a license. Mr Ravel, who founded Air Calin and Air Vanuatu, wants to use Embraer aircraft to fly to the territory's five archipelagos, undercutting Air Tahiti's fares by 15 to 20 percent. He also said the plan was also to fly to the Cook Islands twice a week and to Samoa three times a week. Last year, transport minister Luc Faatau said he feared the new airline would only fly to the most lucrative destinations, such as Bora Bora. He said additional taxes may then have to be levied to sustain unprofitable flights operated by Air Tahiti to many of the 40 smaller islands.

Air Tahiti announced it was suffering the effects of a firefighter strike
A firefighters strike in French Polynesia, now in its fourth day, has prompted Air Tahiti to cancel most internal flights for today. The domestic carrier can only assure services between Tahiti, Raiatea, Bora Bora and ist flight to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. International flights to and from Tahiti have largely been maintained but with altered flight schedules.
