Get Out of Town: SLC to Tahiti Travel Deal


Any time Tahiti is mentioned, you envision crystal clear lagoons, over-the-water bungalows and beautiful Tahitian dancers shaking their hips to the beat. --- The problem is, every time you hear of a great advertised rate, they’re talking about you leaving out of a West Coast city - Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle. How are you supposed to do that when you’re sitting in the middle of this desert valley? Air Tahiti Nui has not forgotten about you, Salt Lake. They’re having a big sale and Salt Lake is included at the same price as Los Angeles or any other West Coast City. Call it our tropical pick, because this deal is less than $1500, and is normally over two grand. So pack up and start shaking those hips.

Flights go into the Papeete airport. Air Tahiti Nui allows travelers to fly from Salt Lake for $1457-$1471 roundtrip, including tax. Departures are throughout the fall with best dates in November and December. Don’t forget to click the “flexible” button on the Web site to get the best deal. You can also call Air Tahiti Nui at 877-824-4846.
