aeroplane_aircalinNew Caledonia is a remote archipelago out in the South Pacific Ocean. This archipelago is east of Australia and north of New Zealand. In its 7,171 square miles, New Caledonia has a large bounty of dazzling scenery and wonderful beaches as well as a unique culture that is a mix of the native and French culture.

New Caledonia has been under French control since 1853 and French is the official language there, though at least twenty-eight native Kanak languages are also widely spoken. New Caledonia is a stellar vacation destination, but how do you get to it?

Since New Caledonia is a set of islands the best way to travel there is to fly. There is really only one airport to fly in to in New Caledonia. La Tontoula International Airport is the main international airport in New Caledonia. It is located in just northwest of Nouméa, the capital city of New Caledonia. This airport has about 161 international flights departing from it each week. The rest of the airports are small domestic airports that mainly send flights between the islands. The airport has four airlines running passenger flights out of it. They are Air New Zealand, Air Vanuatu, Air Vila, Aircalin, and Quantas.
