French Polynesia’s national airline continues to make waves in traveller experience, with two wins at the Passenger Experience Association (APEX) Awards hosted in Ireland this week. Air Tahiti Nui was named 2022 Passenger Choice for Best Entertainment and Best Cabin Crew in the South Pacific.
The airline has bagged several notable wins for travel this year and was named a five star major airline for the third consecutive year in APEX’s official airline rating. The rating program is the first to be only based on independently verified passenger’s feedback.
For the fourth consecutive year, Air Tahiti Nui was also named Best Airline in the South Pacific at the Global Traveller’s GT Tested Reader Survey Awards and Design Airline of the Year for Oceania in the DesignAir Awards, which recognises design and brand image.
As Pacific Island countries take turns to gradually reopen, global travel accreditation and recognition continues to be a competitive benchmark of industry excellence in the region.
Other airlines also picked up awards. The title of South Pacific’s Best Overall Airline went to Air New Zealand while Fiji Airways won APEX / IFSA Best Food and Beverage CEO of Fiji Airways, Andre Viljoen, said “We’re grateful to APEX and our customers for this recognition of our new in-flight menu.”
Earlier this year, the airline launched a new business-class menu with award-winning chef, Richard Cross.
