The New Caledonian flag carrier Aircalin has confirmed Australian travellers will be able to transit in Nouméa to go to Papeete, Tahiti in April and June 2022 on the following dates:

  • Dates: 2, 9, 16 April and 4, 11, 18, 25 June (Saturdays)
  • Outbound: Sydney - Nouméa and Nouméa - Papeete on the A330 (same day trip)
  • Inbound: Papeete - Nouméa and Nouméa - Brisbane (arrival + 1 day)


Outside of these dates, you are still able to travel to The Islands of Tahiti which includes spending a few days in New Caledonia - meaning Australians can enjoy a holiday visiting two Pacific island destinations!
