Prime minister Henry Puna has been treated to an inspection of Air Tahiti Nui’s latest aircraft, a state-of-the-art Boeing Dreamliner.

 

The PM joined other VIP visitors including French Polynesian president Edouard Fritch and his delegation and the prime minister of Samoa, Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi, at a welcome for the gleaming blue and white aircraft when it arrived on its inaugural flight from Papeete to Auckland New Zealand, on Wednesday (CI time).

Air Tahiti Nui is taking delivery of four Dreamliners, all of which will be painted in the airline’s iconic blue tones that Tahiti as well as the trademark tiare flower. The airline has purchased two and is leasing another pair.

Wednesday’s event not only celebrated the arrival of the first Dreamliner, but also 20 years of Air Tahiti Nui.
