Air Tahiti Nui has announced that it will replace its entire long-haul fleet with four new Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner aircrafts. Delivery is expected to begin during the fourth quarter of 2018, coinciding with the company’s 20th-anniversary celebrations.
“Boeing is honored to start this new partnership with Air Tahiti Nui,” said Dinesh Keskar, Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific and India Sales at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 787-900 will provide Air Tahiti Nui with superior performance, range capabilities and economics, while its passengers enjoy the Dreamliner’s unique features such as higher humidity, healthier air filtration, lower cabin altitude, and the largest windows of any current commercial airplane, providing a commanding view of the horizon above beautiful Tahiti throughout the airplane.”
This exciting new aircraft will likely feature 36 space-efficient, fully flat beds in their Poerava Business class, much like United’s 787-900 services, and 240 seats in Moana Economy Class.More posts from May 2015
