French Polynesia to Paris air fares drop

4:24 pm on 4 September 2003

Air Tahiti Nui and Air France have lowered fares for flights between Papeete and Paris by 20 percent to boost travel during the low season.

Return tickets are below 900 US dollars but must be purchased within the next few days.

The Air Tahiti Nui fares are valid until early December while the Air France offer applies for six months starting on October the 1st.

Air France says the offer is not a sign of a price war but a bid to lower costs.

On offer will be 360-thousand seats or the equivalent of seven Airbus 340 planes a day.
