On 26 January 2016, Air France and Air Tahiti signed a new special prorate agreement offering the two airlines’ customers increased services to the islands of French Polynesia.
With this agreement, customers will be able to more easily book their flights to 19 islands of French Polynesia* on departure from Paris, Los Angeles as well as the entire global network served by Air France and its partner airlines.

Travelers can now book a single ticket from their departure airport through to arrival at their destination, including a long- haul trip with Air France and inter-island flight with Air Tahiti.
This new agreement is part of the transatlantic joint-venture between Air France-KLM and its partners Delta Air Lines and Alitalia.

On this occasion, Marnix Fruitema, SVP North America Air France- KLM stated: “With so many cultural, economic and historical connections between France and these idyllic islands, this new partnership means more passengers from around the world can experience all that these islands have to offer with a simplified travel itinerary on board Air France and Air Tahiti.”

Joël Allain, Chairman and CEO of Air Tahiti, stated: “This agreement marks the beginning of a close cooperation between Air France and our airline. It allows us to more widely showcase Tahiti and its islands, which will benefit from Air France’s extensive global distribution network. Facilitated access to the network for travel agents worldwide will allow them to more easily sell the destination. Air Tahiti welcomes the signature of this agreement which helps to promote tourism in the destination”.


This winter, Air France operates three weekly flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Papeete, as a continuation of Los Angeles. Air France customers also benefit from a fourth code- shared frequency operated by Air Tahiti Nui between Los Angeles and Papeete.

On departure from Los Angeles, Air France also offers its customers access to the vast network of its American partner Delta Airlines.
