Air Tahiti Nui has finalized its order for 2 Boeing 787-8 jets with Boeing. The order was previously announced on February 27, 2015 as a commitment. Boeing is valuing the order at $514 million USD ($514,000,000) at "list prices". As usual, list prices are not the final price the airline is getting. Most airlines are getting discounts close to 30 to 50 percent of the list price for many commercial aircraft. Air Tahiti Nui will also be leasing two more Boeing 787-9 from Air Lease Corporation (ALC), giving them a total of 4 Boeing 787-9 jets. Air Tahiti Nui is a Tahiti airline with a base in Papeete.
