Air France - KLM Virtual Group Presents

Destination Saturdays Vol 21: Tahiti

NZAA - 281600ZJUL18


Event Description

Our journey across the globe continues with the 21st installment of Destination Saturdays. Next stop: Tahiti! Detouring from our originally planned route to Sydney, we will depart from Auckland, New Zealand and head northeast across the Pacific Ocean to Fa’a’ā International Airport on the beautiful island of Tahiti. From there we will head to Honolulu (Destination Saturdays Vol. 22 on Aug. 04) before returning back to Sydney (Destination Saturdays Vol. 23 on Aug. 11) to complete the Oceania leg of our tour. Why the detour, you ask? Because you can’t finish summer without a visit to Tahiti and Honolulu. So, ladies and gents, grab your bathing suits!

Air France – KLM Virtual cordially invites you to experience Destination Saturdays, our signature multi-leg event series dedicated to traversing the most iconic destinations, beautiful airports, and challenging approaches across the globe. Some describe it as career mode for the world traveler at heart, while others say we’ve set out to finish what Amelia Earhart started. However, you look at it, Destination Saturdays is sure to deliver fun times flying with friends (old and new). Be part of the journey every week as we pick up where we last left off!
