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.
