We had a possibility to have the feedback on this from HBG Helicopter CEO and owner Renaud Blanc :

Q. For HBG Helicopters Group what does it means, the creation of this partnership with Air Tahiti Nui and  the start of operations in Tahiti?

A. It is a great adventure and we are delighted with the creation of this future company TAHITI NUI HELICOPTERES.

The success of this project is already the cohesion of two teams who met and who immediately wanted to work together on this project.

It is true that for us it is easier to have a partner of our choice and of such high quality like the ATN.

This new TNH company allows us to follow HBG Group development strategy in the Pacific region. This is a major asset for the development of the group, we are proud to provide our support and our know-how to the local authorities and also to the local population by bringing our experience in emergency medical transport by helicopter. 

The group operates a fleet of more than 80 helicopters and has 31 bases on three continents: Europe, Africa and South America. HBG employs 300 people and has 150 pilots.
