Air Tahiti Nui has finalised an order with Boeing for two B787-9s valued at US$514 million at current list prices with delivery set for May and July of 2019. In addition to the two owned aircraft, the Tahitian carrier is also planning to lease two more B787-9s from Air Lease Corporation which are slated to arrive in October 2018. The new aircraft will enable Air Tahiti Nui to phase out its current all-Airbus fleet of five A340-300s with four aircraft destined to be scrapped and one returned to its lessor.
