As many of you will no doubt be aware of, air travel has long-since become much more than just getting from A to B. In the modern era of travelling, the holiday begins once you board the plane. Many airlines are now adopting a policy of hospitality and high quality personal service to ensure that the excitement begins at the gate.
This is a philosophy that has been fully embraced by Air Tahiti. As the international airline of Tahiti, their mission is to promote tourism and trade from key global markets to Tahiti and the surrounding islands, to provide the best possible service to the people of French Polynesia, and to become the first choice for travellers on the routes that they fly on.
The key to achieving those three aims is in the planes themselves. Every plane’s interior is designed to evoke the atmosphere of a traditional Polynesian home. You are greeted on board by the sounds of the island’s legendary music playing gently through the sound system. They even go as far as ensuring your journey smells like you are already there, with the fragrances of Tiare Tahiti gardenia spread subtly through the air. The walls are decorated exclusively by Tahitian artwork and the seats are designed with bright colours and tropical flower patterns to add to that sunny island feel before you’ve even taken off.
To add to their Tahitian feel of the setting, Air Tahiti’s cabin crew attend to your comfort and needs with broad smiles and unrelenting energy and enthusiasm. Every steward is carefully selected and trained to guarantee the best of Tahitian hospitality, and, to ensure that they can help all of their flyers, they are obliged to speak French, Tahitian, and English fluently.
The Tahitian experience simply would not be complete without a taste of the island’s cuisine. Their world class cuisine blends the culinary influences of their Polynesian and French heritage with specialties from each of their destinations. Their meal plan is based on the standards of five-star restaurant and designed by a staff of internationally acclaimed chefs, and they can tailor your meal to your specific preferences or dietary requirements. As a nation heavily inspired by the French, you can expect the wine list to include nothing but the finest of flavors, especially as they are hand-picked by a Parisian sommelier.
To make the most of these services and of the airlines unique services to one of the world’s most beautiful and isolated lands, consider joining Club Tiare.
