Tahiti Nui Launches Inaugural Service from SEA Airport
From the Port of Seattle:
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) welcomes its latest new international service with Tahiti Nui’s 787-9 Dreamliner inaugural service today from Seattle to Papeete. In a new partnership with Alaska Airlines, Air Tahiti Nui becomes the first and only carrier offering nonstop flights connecting the South Pacific and the Pacific Northwest. Air Tahiti Nui will be operating this service twice weekly.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Air Tahiti Nui as the newest international airline to launch service to SEA,” said Port of Seattle Commissioner Toshiko Hasegawa. “As only the second U.S. destination for Air Tahiti Nui, we look forward to being a new gateway for travelers seeking to luxuriate in the tropical paradise of Tahiti.”
“Our new route provides a chance for North American travelers to discover the beauty of the 118 Islands of Tahiti, including Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, and Rangiroa, which serve as the background to the many wonders to discover, landscapes to explore, and memories to create,” said Michel Monvoisin, CEO of Air Tahiti Nui. “In addition to our long-established route from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), this new gateway to The Islands of Tahiti brings the heart of the South Pacific to more travelers in North America and strengthens Air Tahiti Nui’s position as the leading carrier of French Polynesia.”
