Fiji Airways has announced it will start direct flights to New Caledonia from November 30th. Fiji has an existing Air Service Agreement (ASA) which allows Fiji Airways to provide services in French territories.

“Based on this agreement, we were able to negotiate with our counterparts in New Caledonia and select a date for the commencement of services between Nadi and Noumea.

“We at Fiji Airways are very excited about the prospects of this new route,” said chief executive officer and managing director Andre Viljoen.

The first flight to La Tontouta International Airport in Noumea will be on Thursday 30th November and starting December 7th, the national carrier will fly twice weekly, every Monday and Thursday.

“Furthermore, thanks to our codeshare partners, we can connect New Caledonians to more than 100 destinations around the world.

“At Fiji Airways, we have consistently strived to expand our regional services because we see ourselves connecting not just Fiji – but the Pacific to the rest of the world,” he said.

“With the introduction of these new services, Fiji Airways will be flying directly to 26 destinations around the world.”

Noumea is the third new market added to our network since international borders opened in December 2021.

“We have adopted a robust growth plan with ongoing efforts to add more routes to the network.

“This is part of our strategic plan to increase revenue and ensure the long term sustainability of the airline.”
