Air Tahiti Nui Unveils New Look

The airline's new look includes a revamped 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 updated Tiare flower embodies the pure, natural beauty and spirit of The Islands of Tahiti,” the airline said in a statement. “The forward-facing flower conveys a subtle but powerful message about Air Tahiti Nui’s preparedness for the future and captures the very essence of taking flight and moving onwards, forwards and upwards.”

The sensorial, free spirit of the Tiare flower logo is grounded by the refined strength within its new logotype. Thick and thin strokes provide a confident and established feel, and the letterforms are purposefully curved and rounded to mimic the shapes and joins of the Tiare petals. All of the elements tie harmoniously together, much like the Islands of Tahiti themselves, the airline said.

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.

In addition to updating the airline’s visual identity and its most visible icon, Air Tahiti Nui is refreshing its positioning, values, and personality to be centered on the experiential Polynesian nature of “Mana.”

To kick off the new look and positioning as well as to show appreciation to those involved in the airline’s success, expansion and development over the past two decades, Air Tahiti Nui hosted a reception this week. The event, attended by clients and partners, was held in the Air Tahiti Nui Business Lounge of Tahiti-Faa’a airport.

The party included Michel Monvoisin, chief executive officer of Air Tahiti Nui, dropping the veil on the new business lounge welcome sign to reveal the new logo.

The newly revealed branding and positioning are a key part of a broader transformation that Air Tahiti Nui is undergoing in order to remain the premier international airline of French Polynesia.

Upcoming highlights this year will include the presentation of new crew uniforms, a new connected in-flight entertainment system and the delivery of new Dreamliner B787-9 aircraft in October.

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.
