Air Tahiti Nui gets visible

Bringing Tahiti ‘more into the minds of Kiwis’ is one of the three key goals in 2020 for Air Tahiti Nui as it starts the year in new premises in Auckland’s Queen Street.

‘We want to put Tahiti in the spotlight and change the perception of it being a bucket list destination (to being a repeat destination),’ TN’s general manager Pacific, Daniel Eggenberger told guests at the office’s opening ceremony on Wednesday night. Growing revenue by building on existing relationships with the travel trade, and being more visible in-market with sponsorships and partnerships with organisations such as Allianz Francais and the French-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce are the other main missions for 2020.

After 19 years of being represented by a GSA in this market, it’s the first time Air Tahiti Nui has had is own office. TN’s air crew, airport staff and office team come together to host the event. Dignitaries in attendance included the French Ambassador, Sylvaine Carta-Le Vert and senior airline management from Tahiti.
