Boutique Airlines

Certain international airline carriers plus major carriers with unique routes and services can be a great add-on to a boutique/lifestyle hotel stay. 

Recent experience on Air Tahiti Nui which flies from Los Angeles to Paris was a huge surprise.  It fits beautifully with a boutique trip and includes many elements you would expect to find at a great property including design, service, amenities.

This is a small airline and operates one of the youngest fleets of A340-300 aircraft.  Taken from their site:

The airline has headquarters in Papeete and operates from Faa’a International Airport on the island of Tahiti. The company was founded in 1996 and commenced flight operations in 1998. The Government of French Polynesia is the major shareholder in the airline along with Tahitian private investors.

As the international airline of Tahiti, our mission is to develop tourism and trade from key world markets to Tahiti & Her Islands, to provide a high-quality airline for the people of French Polynesia, and to become the first choice of travelers on the routes that we fly.

Our flight crew operating the Air Tahiti Nui A340 aircraft is among the most experienced in the skies. Flight Captains average over 10,000 hours and 15 years of airline service while our Tahitian cabin crew has been carefully selected and extensively trained to provide the highest standards in passenger safety and comfort. Every member of the Air Tahiti Nui crew is fluent in French, Tahitian, and English in addition to Japanese for the crew on our Japanese routes. 

French Polynesian Hospitality!
