The best solution for linking Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Noumรฉa-La Tontouta

On Thursday 24 October 2019, Air France and Aircalin signed up to renew their partnership agreement for another next five years.  

It cements the two airlines commitment to offering long-term travel solutions for serving New Caledonia from Paris.
