Air Tahiti Nui was established on 31 October 1996 and commenced flight operations on 20 November 1998. It is the first international airline based in Papeete, Tahiti, formed to develop inbound tourism. The government of French Polynesia is the major shareholder (84.4%) along with other local investors. Currently, Air Tahiti Nui has 782 employees.[2]

In May 2015, Air Tahiti Nui announced its intention to replace its entire fleet, then consisting of five Airbus A340-300 aircraft. They will be replaced by four Boeing 787-9 aircraft, which are due to be delivered in 2018 and 2019.[3]

In April 2018, in anticipation of its new fleet of Boeing 787-9s, Air Tahiti Nui launched its redesigned brandmark and updated typography. The redesigned logo is a joint collaboration between Future Brand and Polynesian contemporary artist Alexander Lee.[4] The re-drawn brandmark represents a tiare flower (emblem of the airline since its beginning) in a 2/3 view, with the profile of a vahine (woman, in Tahitian) in its pistil; a nod to Tahiti's reputation for beautiful women and flowers in the South Seas.
