After becoming SEA's first connection to French Polynesia in October, Air Tahiti Nui is now connecting Seattle to Paris in new year-round, twice-weekly service. A water turret salute on the ramp and a ribbon-cutting event in the terminal officially kicked off the first flight to the European continent.
In partnership with Alaska Airlines, Air Tahiti Nui becomes the first and only carrier offering nonstop flights connecting the South Pacific, Pacific Northwest, and now Paris.
“We are very excited Air Tahiti Nui is launching their second new international service from SEA, only eight months since we first welcomed their initial launch from the Pacific Northwest to Tahiti,” said Arif Ghouse, SEA Airport Chief Operating Officer. “This new service provides an additional option for travelers between Metropolitan France and French Polynesia. And, of course, we say to those travelers - Don’t forget Seattle! Stop along your way!”
