Air Tahiti is a French airline which flies domestically within French Polynesia with its hub at Fa’a’a International Airport.
The Airline slogan Air Tahiti is 'the airline linking Tahiti and her islands.' As such, Air Tahiti flies to many islands and destinations include Ahe, Arutua, Bora Bora, Fakarava, Hao, Hiva Oa, Huahine, Makemo, Mangareva, Manihi, Mataiva, Maupiti, Moorea, Nuku Hiva, Raiatea, Raivavae, Rangiroa, Rarotonga and more
Air Tahiti operates to 45 islands of French Polynesia, which connects more than 90% of the population through a fleet of ATRs, Twin Otters and Beechcrafts.
Air Tahiti also operates flights to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Despite being a private company, Air Tahiti's primary purpose is to scheduled air transportation between the islands of French Polynesia with a public service mission.
Passengers with Air Tahiti are able to purchase Air Tahiti multi-island tours allowing people to visit more than one island on the same trip. There are many pass or extensions including Discovery Pass, Bora Bora Pass, Lagoons Pass, Corail Pass and many others. In addition, passengers are able to purchase one island fares to search for one-way and return airfares to your destination.
Air Tahiti operates an open-seating policy on its flight so passengers are not allocated a seat at check-in.
Air Tahiti Baggage Allowance
The size of Air Tahiti cabins and their luggage compartments do not allow them to grant additional cabin allowance for your accessories such as laptops, cameras, handbags, clothes etc. like international airlines operating a fleet of large aircraft.
These limits have been set in order to guarantee your safety on board and to ensure that your hand baggage can be stowed in the baggage compartments. If your hand baggage exceeds the permitted weight and size limits, it may be transferred to the hold, even after check-in. In such cases, it will be "allowed with limited release" and a fee will be payable if it exceeds the hold baggage allowance.

Air Tahiti News
It's all changing for Air Tahiti Nui! Their new decision has created a completely different look with a stunning interior. Not only that but Air Tahiti are fully embracing their heritage with their registration letters. When all four of the Dreamliner fleet arrive, their registration letters will tell a story. 'The warrior (TOA) going forward (MUA) in the great (NUI) canoe (VAA).'The livery and cabin design of the airline's new fleet of B787-9s was unveiled in Tahiti in front of special guests including French Polynesia President Edouard Fritch and Boeing Commercial Airplanes Senior Vice President Dinesh Keskar.
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 flair 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 centred on the experiential Polynesian nature of “Mana.”
Air Tahiti NUI are now offering Premium Economy seats on their flights
Air Tahiti Nui’s first toe-dip into the expanding premium economy segment is now on sale ahead of the replacement of its Airbus 340-300 fleet with fuel-efficient Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. The fleet renewal, which includes enhancements to the economy and business cabins, is scheduled to begin with the arrival of the first three-class Dreamliner in November. The other three are expected to be in service by September 2019. With this new upheaval, he premium economy cabin offers 32 Zodiac Aerospace seats with a 38-inch seat pitch.
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.
The net return for French Polynesia's international carrier was less than half of what it was in 2015 but the carrier remained profitable for a fifth consecutive year. The airline had a slight drop in revenue to just under $US350 million despite a 1.4 percent increase in passenger numbers. It said it carried 480,000 passengers who accounted for 71 percent of the territory's market. The airline's load factor was over 76 percent.
Toulouse-based manufacturer ATR booked two additional orders for its ATR 72-600 turboprop at the Paris Air Show June 22, one each for Swedish regional carrier BRA and French Polynesian carrier Air Tahiti. Total value for the additional orders is $53.6 million at list prices.
Additionally, ATR announced it is set to launch a new version of its 46-50 seat 42-600 turboprop with improved short take-off and landing (STOL) capabilities, the ATR 42-600S. The aircraft has been designed to reduce the minimum length of runway required to take-off and land with full passenger capacity, down to 800 meters (2,624 ft.)
