We are thrilled to welcome our first ferry customer – Apetahi Express into the AeroCRS family! Apetahi Express is a “Groupe Degage” company from French Polynesia. It started to operate Aremiti 5 catamaran from the end of March 2021 and will offer a few round trips per week between the islands of Tahiti, Huahine, Raiatea, Taha’a, and Bora Bora.

The Ferry company offers from March 26 three weekly rotations between Tahiti and the Raromatai with its Aremiti 5 ship. The boat will be able to accommodate 500 passengers and 16 tons of freight. It takes 3h30 to connect Tahiti to Huahine, 1 hour from Huahine to Raiatea, and 1h30 for the Raiatea-Bora Bora section. So it’s gonna take about 7 hours, including stopovers, to go to Tahiti-Bora Bora on the same day.

Mr. Samuel Matton, Commercial Director of Groupe Degage commented: “Apetahi Express is a new company with different bookings needs than what we were having on our other ferry lines. We needed a solution to start sales on a very short schedule. In the beginning, we weren’t sure that Aerocrs could fit our exigences because we’re a ferry line, not an airline. But after a call with the AeroCRS team, we figured out that it could do the job and we decided to jump in the adventure with them. Now we can say that Aerocrs is simple to handle, efficient and the team is super reactive.”   

Mr. Meir Hadassi-Turner, CEO of AeroCRS said:  “Despite the global disruption in the aviation and transportation industry, we at AeroCRS opened new verticals of our business providing solutions also for ground and maritime transportation companies. I’m happy and proud that Apetahi Express decided to use AeroCRS solutions and facilitate their reservations and distribution management processes. We are excited to grow globally, opening a French Polynesia market and we are sure that our collaboration will be fruitful and beneficial.”
