Open the virtual aircraft door and be among the first travellers in the world to see the inside of Air Tahiti Nui’s 787-9, eight months before it launches.

In anticipation of the arrival of its first Dreamliner, Tahiti’s national carrier released some early images this morning, of the plane’s three-class configuration.

Yes, three-class configuration – Business, Economy and for the first time, Premium Economy.

The airline will introduce its first Premium product aboard the 787 when it arrives later this year, giving flyers an affordable choice between Business and Economy.

Air Tahiti Nui Dreamliner Premium Economy

Premium Economy offers extra leg-room and space.

In line with the Premium offering, the 32 seats will offer additional leg room and space for extra comfort, along with a thin backrest and an eight-inch seat recline (two inches more than Economy).

Premium will spend their flights scrolling through entertainment options on a 13-inch backseat screen, while Economy passengers will enjoy a 12-inch screen.

Air Tahiti Nui Dreamliner Economy Class

Economy passengers will enjoy upgraded 12-inch entertainment screens.

Air Tahiti Nui’s Poerava Business Class will also receive an upgrade in the Dreamliner, with the carrier installing 30 fully-flat seats, wide range of storage areas, a touch-screen entertainment system, personal lighting and a privacy divider.

Guests in all classes will be able to stay connected via onboard wi-fi, which will be made available using Panasonic’s eXConnect satellite broadband.

Air Tahiti Nui Dreamliner Business Class

Business Class will feature fully-flat seats & touch-screen entertainment.

Travellers will feel that sense of island paradise from the moment they board thanks to Tahitian-inspired interior design and crew’s warm Polynesian hospitality.

Air Tahit Nui’s first Dreamliner will take off from Auckland in November this year and will be followed by three additional 787s rolling out from September 2019.

Travel Agents can secure their clients on flights as bookings have now opened.
