AIR TAHITI NUI SIGNS NEW INTERLINE E-TICKET AGREEMENT WITH DELTA AIR LINES
LOS ANGELES, CA, December 11, 2006 – Tahiti is closer than you think and flying there just got easier with Air Tahiti Nui’s new interline e-ticket agreement with Atlanta- based Delta Air Lines. The new partnership will enable travelers to use a single electronic, paperless ticket for itineraries that include travel on Air Tahiti Nui and Delta flights, providing convenience to customers and carriers alike.
Prior to the announcement, passengers received paper tickets for flights on either Air Tahiti Nui or Delta if booked from the other carrier. Interline e-tickets now permit customers to travel and check their baggage through to their final destinations on both airlines using a paperless multi-carrier ticket. Air Tahiti Nui’s interline e-ticket agreement network now includes Delta Air Lines and American Airlines.
Travelers booked on Delta Air Lines flights connecting with Air Tahiti Nui’s twice-daily nonstop service from Los Angeles International Airport to Papeete, Tahiti, and thrice-weekly nonstop service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport – with one-stop connections from Papeete to Sydney and Auckland – will benefit from the ease of smooth e-ticket travel with both carriers, eliminating the worry of losing, forgetting, or changing paper tickets and allowing passengers to keep track of their travel plans using a single e-ticket itinerary they can easily share with friends and family by email.
“Our new interline e-ticketing partnership with Delta will provide an enhanced service to those on their way to Tahiti with Air Tahiti Nui,” said Barry Zorn, Air Tahiti Nui’s senior vice president network. “With nonstop service from Los Angeles and New York to Tahiti, we understand that some of our customers fly in from other gateways and we’re pleased to be able to offer the convenience of interline e-ticketing with Delta and American Airlines.”
Tahiti and Her Islands, including the romantic Bora Bora and magical Moorea are only a 8 hour nonstop flight from Los Angeles and 12 hours from New York. Awarded Best Airline- Pacific Region by Skytrax ®, Air Tahiti Nui jump-starts any South Pacific escape upon boarding with warm Tahitian hospitality and comfort.
