Air Tahiti Nui, the flagship carrier to the breathtaking Islands of Tahiti, is thrilled to announce its new brand ambassadors. The diverse group is made up of athletes, artists, explorers, chefs, and Polynesian culture experts who are passionate about French Polynesia and will work to highlight the beauty and warmth of Tahitian culture.

These ambassadors will share their unique island experiences through a series of engaging articles, offering insider tips on where to go, what to do, and how to make the most of a visit. Each ambassador specialises in a specific area, including island exploration, gastronomy, culture, ocean activities, and beauty and well-being. Their insights will provide travellers with an exclusive guide to the Islands of Tahiti, allowing them to explore the fenua (islands) through the eyes of locals.

“Air Tahiti Nui is excited to present these outstanding individuals who call Tahiti home. We believe that their enthusiasm and insights will help visitors experience Tahiti to its fullest,” said Grant Sinclair, General Manager Pacific at Air Tahiti Nui. “Polynesia is a land of explorers, and our brand ambassadors reflect the spirit of adventure and discovery that is at the heart of Tahitian culture.”
