Air Tahiti Nui is launching non-stop Papeete – Seattle service and a new partnership with Alaska Airlines. This is in addition to its partnership with American AAdvantage.
Seattle service launches October 4:
- Papeete – Seattle, 10:00 p.m. – 10:25 a.m.+1 Tues/Sat
Seattle – Papeete, 12:40 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Wed/Sun
Mileage Plan members will earn miles with Air Tahiti Nui on paid tickets starting April 1. Alaska warns though that miles can take up to 6-8 weeks to post.
Redemption is expected to be available “later this spring” and no award chart has been published yet. Paid Air Tahiti Nui flights will not earn elite qualifying miles in the Mileage Plan program.
