NEW YORK, NY, May 16, 2008 – Globetrotters and culture hounds can now explore the world at their own pace at an astonishingly low price with Air Tahiti Nui's new Around the World fare. Travel from Los Angeles or New York to world-class destinations including Paris, Dubai, Bangkok, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai, Osaka, Tokyo, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Auckland, and of course, Tahiti. Allowing up to six free stopovers over the course of one year, Air Tahiti Nui's Around the World fare starts at US$3,600 for economy class including fuel surcharges.
