Boeing has released images that show the new livery being added to Air Tahiti Nui’s first B787-9 aircraft.
The livery features Air Tahiti Nui’s trademark tiare flower, a tattoo pattern representing a story of Tahiti and its people, and the blue hues the islands are synonymous with.
Australians and New Zealanders are set to be among the first to be carried on the Tahitian Dreamliner with the new aircraft commencing service on the Auckland to Papeete route on 8 November 2018.
To coincide with Air Tahiti Nui’s 20th anniversary this year, the carrier is phasing out its current Airbus A340-300 fleet and replacing it with four 787-9 Dreamliners.
