Due to the ongoing uncertainty in New Caledonia, Air New Zealand will pause its Auckland – Nouméa service from 10 June to 28 September 2024.

Air New Zealand General Manager Short-Haul, Jeremy O’Brien says given the continued closure of the airport and ongoing uncertainty it’s challenging for the airline to continue operations in New Caledonia in the short term.

“We understand that this will be disappointing for customers who have travel plans to and from Nouméa and we apologise for the disruption this causes. It’s not a decision we have taken lightly, and we’re committed to returning to Nouméa after 28 September.”

Customers booked directly with Air New Zealand to travel to Nouméa will have their flights automatically held in credit. Due to limited options and continued uncertainty in the region, customers will not be rebooked on flights to Nouméa via alternative services. Customers can also opt to receive a full refund on their booking.

Customers booked through a travel agent should contact their travel agent directly to discuss the options available to them.  

“We’d like to thank customers in advance for their patience and understanding at this time.”
