Air Tahiti Nui’s revamped two-class A340-300 aircraft landed in Auckland for the first time yesterday, as the South Pacific carrier continues to roll out its reconfigured fleet with an enhanced inflight entertainment system and a fresh cabin redesign.
Under the multi-million dollar revamp, the fleet has been upgraded to a two-class model with an enhanced Business Class increasing from 24 to 32 seats with a new angled lie-flat design. The new Economy Class features comfort-focused lightweight seats that are a spacious 18 inches wide and have an average 32-inch pitch.
The new inflight entertainment system offers on-demand access to a wide range of movies and television programs as well as magazines, games, music and special channels for kids plus a destination focused channel allowing customers to experience Tahiti and her islands from the moment they step on board.
As the international airline of Tahiti, the interior design continues to reflect the beauty and charm of French Polynesia.
The newly configured planes are being gradually phased in across the network and will service some Auckland to Papeete services.
