NZ to LA is the Hot Ticket with Air Tahiti Nui This Summer

NZ to LA is the Hot Ticket with Air Tahiti Nui This Summer

Air Tahiti Nui is turning up the heat with a sizzling deal from New Zealand to Los Angeles this summer, starting from $1405* return.

On sale until Saturday January 25, New Zealanders can fly return to LA from Auckland starting from $1405* in economy and $5799* in business.

Air Tahiti Nui General Manager New Zealand Mark Hutchinson said Kiwis should move quickly if they want the hottest ticket around.

“We’re the only airline offering New Zealanders the chance to fly to Los Angeles via Tahiti and this year we’ve upped the frequency to three weekly flights. Whether holidaymakers are seeking a sunshine stopover in Tahiti or want to breeze right through with our smooth transfers, we’re offering the ideal way to get to LA in 2014,” Mr Hutchinson said.

As the gateway to North America, Air Tahiti Nui’s Los Angeles flight offers onward connections to more than 80 destinations in the USA.

This year Air Tahiti Nui is offering thrice weekly flights from Auckland to Tahiti and Los Angeles via Papeete as well as better connecting ongoing services to and from Paris as the airline enhances its French connection.

The airline’s cabin overhaul, to include more comfortable seats and a new inflight entertainment system which delivers tablet-quality viewing, is expected to be finished by mid-2014.
