Arrivals terminal at JFK

Air Tahiti Nui doesn’t have a separate terminal and its aircrafts land at different terminals. Some flights are operated by the airline on a codeshare basis. Typically, these aircrafts arrive at terminal 8. Since Air Tahiti Nui doesn’t have its own terminal, we strongly recommend that you seek reliable information before traveling. You can do this on the airport website or on the airline website.
