Air Tahiti has taken delivery of its first ATR 42-600 as part of its fleet re-equipment program that includes firm orders for three ATR 42-600s and four ATR 72-600s.

Air Tahiti is the first to operate the ATR-600 series in the French overseas departments and will use the aircraft between Papeete and Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.

The ATRs are ETOPS 120-certified, making them suitable for the long over-water flights typically operated by Air Tahiti.
