Corsair makes last flight to Papeete

6:09 am on 2 April 2003

The French airline, Corsair, has made its last flight from Paris to Papeete, ending 11 years of service to Tahiti.

This follows an announcement by the carrier's owner made last August to stop the service.

Corsair flew just under 70-thousand passengers to Papeete each year, with planes being normally eighty percent full.
