American and Air Tahiti Nui to Codeshare

Travel to paradise in the South Pacific just got easier with American Airlines and Air Tahiti Nui entering into a codeshare agreement, pending likely approval from the US Department of Transportation.

Once approved, American Airlines will place their code on Air Tahiti Nui flights between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Papeete Faa’a International Airport (PPT) — the same agreement allows Air Tahiti Nui to place its code on American flights from their Los Angeles gateway.

Customers will be able to buy tickets from either American Airlines or Air Tahiti Nui, the international carrier of Tahiti, for seamless travel to and from Papeete.  American operates out of Terminal 4 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) while Air Tahiti Nui operates from the Tom Bradley International Terminal; the two terminals are a short walk, adjacent to each other.

Kurt Stache, American’s Vice President – Strategic Alliances, said, “Upon approval, our codeshare relationship with Air Tahiti Nui will give our customers yet another option when traveling to the South Pacific and French Polynesia.”  Stache added, “We look forward to working with Air Tahiti Nui to provide our customers more options and easy access when traveling throughout our respective networks.”

Etienne Howan, Chairman and CEO of Air Tahiti Nui, said, “The marketing strength of American Airlines will raise awareness across the United States about the destination of Tahiti and the addition of these new cities to the route network will help further develop the inflow of tourists to Polynesia.”

Air Tahiti Nui operates daily non-stop flights to their hub in Papeete from Los Angeles International Airport along with flights to Paris via LAX.  The carrier serves airports on four continents and is a partner airline with AAdvantage, the American Airlines Frequent Flyer program.
