"We are offering this attractive fare to highlight the fact that Air Tahiti Nui also serves Auckland in addition to Papeete from Los Angeles," Wally Sumner, Air Tahiti Nui's Vice President-North America said. "New Zealand is today one of the world's most popular destinations, stimulated in large part by the phenomenal success of "The Lord of the Rings" film trilogy. Combining with a stop in Tahiti, paradise on earth, Air Tahiti Nui passengers can enjoy a unique vacation experience for a very reasonable air fare," Sumner added.
Air Tahiti Nui is the leading carrier between the United States and Tahiti and offers 12 weekly flights on the route. From Los Angeles, the airline also offers 5 weekly departures nonstop to Paris.
