The number of Australian travellers preferring to visit Tahiti has almost doubled this year, with the region experiencing a 43.
5 percent jump in Aussie arrivals in February this year.
Compared to the same month last year, the French Polynesian islands figures saw February to be the busiest month for Australian arrivals, a figure increased by Tahitis natural appeal, according to Tahiti Tourisme Australia representative Robert Thompson.
Mr Thompson noted that the escalation in arrivals occurred outside of Aussie peak travel months from September to November.
We havent seen February numbers like this since 2002 its really quite remarkable, the Australian representative said.
The summer spike is most likely due to a combination of factors including the ongoing strength of the Australian dollar, but also a run of holiday packages with enticing value adds like upgrades to overwater villas and half board.
