Air Tahiti Nui continues to prepare for the introduction of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft towards the end of 2018, launching a micro-site to showcase the carbon-composite twin-engine jet, its new Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabin and preview an all-new livery.
“Our Dreamliner fleet begins a new chapter in our proud history of connecting Tahiti to the world,” the webpage boasts.
“We’ve selected what we believe to be the best aircraft flying the skies, the Boeing 787-9, and we’ve made it uniquely Tahitian. Come fly with us and be among the first to be carried to your dream destination on the wings of our Dreamliner.”
The decal features “a collection of tattoos” towards the rear of the Dreamliner that “tell a visual story about Tahiti and its people”.
“The tiare is encircled by ripples on the water with flocks of birds that represent friendship and helping others. A manta ray represents wisdom, protection and elegance, while a whale represents strength and abundance,” the portal says.
Other symbols include a seagull, a Tiki, ocean waves and fish hooks.
