Air Thaiti Nui receives its second Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner


Papeete - Air Tahiti Nui welcomed its second Boeing 787-9. The airline expects two more Dreamliners this year in May and then in August respectively.

Registered as F-ONUI and christened as Tupaia, the second Dreamliner of the Tahitian carrier is configured like its first Boeing 787-9 to accommodate 30 passengers in Business class, 32 in Premium and 232 in Economy, a total of 294 seats.

The airline's first Dreamliner (F-OMUA-Fakarava) has been in service since November 2017 between Auckland and Los Angeles.

The first two copies are leased from the American lessor ALC. The other two were directly purchased from Boeing for $ 517 million at list prices. The third copy is expected to join the Tahitian operator's fleet in May this year and the fourth in August.

Upon the arrival of the last Dreamliner, Air Tahiti Nui will remove its four Airbus A340-300 from the service and operate an all-Dreamliner fleet that consists of four aircraft. The A340s will be dismantled to be resold as spare parts.
