Aircalin doubles down on Singapore – Noumea flights

Aircalin has doubled its flights from Singapore to New Caledonia to four times weekly, with a fifth flight in store from July next year, as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in the French overseas territory.

Back in May this year we reported how Singapore was getting its first direct air link to the South Pacific islands of New Caledonia since the mid-1990s, with twice weekly nine-hour flights by Aircalin linking the French overseas territory using Airbus A330neo aircraft from July 2022.


It was certainly nice to see that Changi Airport’s recovery from COVID-19 wasn’t exclusive to pre-pandemic routes, with this new holiday option, described as “The French paradise on Australia’s doorstep”, now available for more adventurous Singapore residents.

Flights benefit from flat-bed seats in Business Class on these brand new planes to and from Noumea – Singapore’s latest direct holiday destination.
