Air Tahiti Nui has finalized an order with Boeing for two 787-9 Dreamliners, valued at $514 million at current list prices.

The flag carrier for French Polynesia and a new 787 customer, has also leased two additional 787-9s through the Air Lease Corporation, based in Los Angeles, Calif.

"The Dreamliner order heralds an exciting new era for international travel to and from the world's most beautiful islands Tahiti," said Michel Monvoisin, Air Tahiti Nui's Chairman and CEO. "The entire Air Tahiti Nui family is proud, excited and highly committed to the successful introduction of the Boeing 787-9 into Air Tahiti Nui's global network."

With the fuselage stretched by 20 feet (6 meters) over the 787-8, the 787-9 can fly more passengers and more cargo farther.

 The 787-9 also leverages the design of the 787-8, offering passengers features such as the large windows, large stow bins, modern LED lighting, higher humidity, a lower cabin altitude, cleaner air and a smoother ride.

Air Tahiti Nui, headquartered in Papeete on the Island of Tahiti, links the South Pacific with four continents as the leading carrier to French Polynesia, with daily non-stop service to Tahiti from Los Angeles.
