Boeing Commercial Airplanes is finalizing a recent order for two 787-9 Dreamliners Air Tahiti Nui valued at approximately $514 million.
"Boeing is honored to start this new partnership with Air Tahiti Nui," Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said. "The 787-9 will provide Air Tahiti Nui with superior performance, range capabilities and economics, while its passengers will enjoy the Dreamliner’s unique features, such as higher humidity, lower cabin altitude and the largest windows of any commercial airplane, providing a commanding view of the horizon above beautiful Tahiti throughout the airplane."
This week the Federal Aviation Administration added Boeing South Carolina-built 787-9s to the company's production certificate, which means the U.S.-based manufacturer can now produce and deliver this type of aircraft from its facility in North Charleston, South Carolina.
Air Tahiti Nui is the flag-carrier for French Polynesia and has headquarters in Papeete, with operations at Faa'a International Airport on the island of Tahiti. Boeing is a major international aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners. For more information about Boeing, call 312-544-2000.
