Boeing Statement on Air Tahiti Nui Commitment for Two 787-9 Dreamliners
Boeing is pleased that Air Tahiti Nui has announced a commitment to purchase two 787-9 Dreamliners. The order, valued at $514 million at current list prices, will be posted on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website when finalized.
“Boeing is honored to start this new partnership with Air Tahiti Nui,” said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 787-9 will provide Air Tahiti Nui with superior performance, range capabilities and economics, while its passengers will enjoy the Dreamliner’s unique features such as higher humidity, lower cabin altitude and the largest windows of any current commercial airplane, providing a commanding view of the horizon above beautiful Tahiti throughout the airplane.”
Air Tahiti Nui, the flag-carrier for French Polynesia, has headquarters in Papeete and operates from Faa’a International Airport on the island of Tahiti.
