On the occasion of Air Tahiti 60th anniversary and 30 years of partnership with ATR, the airline decided to use our ADHECAL 13880® decal solutions to decorate two newly delivered ATR 72.
Each aircraft displays the same symbols in 2 different assembled liveries. “These new liveries embody a stronger and more contemporary representation of the Polynesian identity of the company”, explains Air Tahiti in a press release.

Inspired from traditional Polynesian tattoos, these decorations were designed by the pupils of the Center of the Art professions of Papeete. ADHETEC used its engineering expertise to project the drawings to the aircraft to reproduce exactly the artwork imagined by the Tahitian pupils. Air Tahiti recognizes that “the difficulty was to choose among all the drawings imagined by the pupils, an artwork that could be reproduce on the aircraft taking into account all the technical constraints”.

Therefore, it was clear to them, that ADHETEC was the ideal partner to process, manufacture and install this complex design while meeting the tight deadlines. This successful project will give the opportunity to Air Tahiti to strengthen its image and be the company that reunites the Polynesian islands

“On behalf of AIR TAHITI, I would like to congratulate the entire ADHETEC team for their professionalism, product quality and respect of the deadlines we requested. A big thank you to Philippe and Frederic for their availability and great support, they provided exceptional efforts during the week to finish the installation on time. The first comments are unanimous : it is MAGNIFICENT ! There will surely be plenty of other positive comments tonight for the presentation ceremony, A great Maururu (Thank you)” 
Best regards,
