On January 19th 2019 we had the pleasure to welcome our second Tahitian Dreamliner named Tupaia.
Tupaia was born around 1725, on the sacred island of Raiatea. He was introduced to navigation, orientation technics, knowledge of the seasons, currents, observation of the sky and stars.
Air Tahiti Nui by naming its second aircraft Tupaia, is honoring the ancestral Polynesian knowledge of travelling overseas.
