Air Tahiti About Air Tahiti

Air Tahiti is an airline based in French Polynesia. It is based in Papeete and mainly flies to regional destinations. In addition to Air Tahiti Nui, Air Tahiti is the most important airline within the island state. In addition, all passengers and aircraft in Papeete Faa’a are handled by Air Tahiti.

The airline was founded in 1950 by local companies. A year later, the Territorial Administration Air Tahiti provided a Grumman Mallard flying boat. In 1953 the state-owned company Régie Aérienne Interinsulaire (RAI) was established. After its establishment, however, the then territorial administration of the airline withdrew all traffic rights. The French airline Transports Aériens Intercontinentaux, or “TAI” for short, carried out the respective air transport between the islands there on behalf of RAI. In 1958, the TAI then set up a long-haul connection between Bora Bora and Nouméa. At the same time it was able to acquire the majority stake in RAI, which was named Réseau Aérien Interinsulaire. Following the privatization, two Consilidates PBY flying boats were used. In 1961 regular international connections could be established for the first time. In the 1960s, RAI owned Short Bermuda flying boats and Douglas DC-4 machines that flew to a total of six destinations. In 1970 the company was renamed Air Polynése. Two years later they already flew to eleven destinations. The fleet was expanded with the aircraft of the types DHC-6 Twin Otter, Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander and Fokker 27 Friendship.

It wasn’t until 1986 that the airline was named Air Tahiti. The fleet was completely renewed and replaced by ATR aircraft. The route network was expanded and the fleet was modernized again. As of October 2020, the fleet consists of the following aircraft: two ATR 42, eight ATR 72.
