Air Tahiti Nui has launched the first non-stop service connecting Seattle to Tahiti. The inaugural flight, TN51, departed Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) at 1230hrs local time on Wednesday 5 October to arrive in Tahiti at 1910hrs local time on Wednesday 5 October.
Air Tahiti Nui has added additional weekly services on its ex-Auckland routes. Effective July, three services a week from Auckland-Papeete will connect with services to Los Angeles and Paris.
The July boost will meet the peak winter sun holiday season for the southern hemisphere and then revert to seasonal demand with another boost scheduled to commence in October to meet the peak northern hemisphere travel season.
