Norwegian Air Argentina plans Buenos Aires-Tahiti service

1 January, 2018

Norwegian Air Argentina plans to launch service from Buenos Aires to Tahiti (Radio NZ, 29-Dec-2017). Currently, the only air service between Papeete and South America is to Chile via Rapa Nui/Easter Island. French Blue and United Airlines, meanwhile, plan to operate to Papeete from San Francisco while Air France and Air Tahiti Nui operate from Los Angeles. There is reportedly concern in French Polynesia that there won't be sufficient tourist accommodation to cope with the additional capacity.
