LOS ANGELES, CA, June 24, 2008 – Air Tahiti Nui is one of the first airlines to offer its First and Business class passengers “Access 1” cards for expedited security and immigration processing at Paris’ Charles DeGaulle International Airport. Introduced and managed by Aeroport de Paris, the “Access 1” system gives priority status to cardholders, allowing them to queue up on a separate, dedicated line. Air Tahiti Nui, the national French Polynesian carrier, has been offering this added-value service to its most elite guests since March 1, 2008.
Named “Best Airline – Pacific Region” and “Best Cabin Staff – Pacific Region” for the past five years by the Skytrax World Airline Survey®, Air Tahiti Nui prides itself on providing the best possible service to its customers. Those who fly First and Business class are given the special cards either onboard, when flying to Paris from Los Angeles, or at check-in, when departing Paris for Los Angeles.
Air Tahiti Nui flies nonstop from Los Angeles International Airport to Paris on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, departing LAX at 12:30pm and arriving Charles DeGaulle International Airport at 8:25am the next morning. Return flights on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays depart France at 11:30am and arrive Southern California at 2:20pm the same day.
Air Tahiti Nui serves all of its routes with a modern fleet of exclusive Airbus A340-300 aircraft, ideally suited for long-haul flights, seating 294 passengers in spacious, comfortable three class configurations: six in first class, 24 in business class and 264 in economy class. Every seat in the aircraft features an individual video screen and the cabin is widely acknowledged to be one of the quietest in the air today.
