Air Tahiti Nui welcomes new premium class

To celebrate the dreamy, new three-class configuration of its Tahitian Dreamliner, Air Tahiti Nui is offering guests the chance to upgrade from Economy to Premium Economy for just $250* each way.

On sale until 2 July 2018, guests who book Air Tahiti Nui’s sale airfare (Economy ‘O’ class) can upgrade to the airline’s new Moana Premium Economy class for $250 each way to enjoy the extra space and comfort of the premium cabin.

The deal is valid for Air Tahiti Nui flights between Auckland and Papeete from 8 November 2018, when Air Tahiti Nui’s first Dreamliner commences service, through to 5 December 2018.

Return economy airfares from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane to Papeete via Auckland are currently on sale from just $1219* per person for departures until 5 December 2018.

To coincide with Air Tahiti Nui’s 20th anniversary this year, the flag carrier for French Polynesia is phasing out its current Airbus A340-300 fleet and replacing it with four 787-9 Dreamliners including two purchased and two leased through the Air Lease Corporation.

The arrival of the 787-9 marks the launch of a new Premium Economy class, as well as the complete redesigning of the Business and Economy classes.

  • In Poerava Business, the 30 Parallel Diamond seats by Rockwell Collins can transform into a 180° bed, around 200cm in length, configured in rows of 2-2-2.
  • The new Moana Premium Economy class rows are configured in 2-3-2, with the all new Z535 Zodiac Aerospace seat. Its unique structure gives the optimum space of 96.5cm between rows and a 20cm reclining capacity.
  • The Moana Economy has 232 Z300 Zodiac Aerospace seats, configured in rows of 9 (3-3-3), especially designed for long-haul voyages with an articulated seat base and reclining capacity of 15cm, making them one of the most comfortable new generation seats.
