United Launches Route to Tahiti, Extends Year-Round Service

United Airlines launched its nonstop service to Tahiti Tuesday, making it the only carrier in the United States to offer flights to the island.

To celebrate the debut of United’s new route between San Francisco and Pape’ete, the airline also announced it is extending its Tahiti schedule to year-round service from California. The flights offer customers a convenient gateway to the islands of French Polynesia, including Mo’orea, Bora Bora, the Marquesas and Rangiroa.

United’s service to Tahiti is scheduled to depart from San Francisco International Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and year-round service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays will begin March 30, 2019.

“We are thrilled to extend this exciting flight to a year-round schedule,” United Airlines regional president Janet Lamkin said in a statement. “For Californians and our customers connecting through San Francisco, this route offers an escape to a little corner of paradise.”

The Tahiti route will be operated with Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft throughout the year

In addition to serving Tahiti, United and United Express operate more than 250 daily flights between San Francisco and 90 destinations throughout North America, Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Caribbean.

Tickets are now available for purchase on United’s official website.
