Founder of AirCalin attempts to set up new airline

Four months ago, Bill Ravel, a New Caledonia-based businessman lodged an application to set up a new airline, called Islands, to compete against Air Tahiti. The new company has told Tahiti-infos that it has received no official reply and now wants the court to formalise the apparent rejection. It also said that there was no legal obstacle to be issued a license. Mr Ravel, who founded Air Calin and Air Vanuatu, wants to use Embraer aircraft to fly to the territory's five archipelagos, undercutting Air Tahiti's fares by 15 to 20 percent. He also said the plan was also to fly to the Cook Islands twice a week and to Samoa three times a week. Last year, transport minister Luc Faatau said he feared the new airline would only fly to the most lucrative destinations, such as Bora Bora. He said additional taxes may then have to be levied to sustain unprofitable flights operated by Air Tahiti to many of the 40 smaller islands.

Air Loyauté flights may be distrupted as cyclone ventures nearer

Cyclone Gita has caused a maximum lecel 2 alert in parts of New Caledonia. This means the islands' residents have to stay indoors until the alert is lifted. Mr Diver said people were remaining vigilant and in Noumea the strongest impact of the cyclone was expected to be felt this evening. Noumea is where the airport hub for Air Loyauté is situated. This has caused Air Loyaute, which flies to the Loyalty Islands to cancel today's flights. Air Caledonie put on additional flights to transport passengers from the Isle of Pines, where the airport is now closed, while Noumea's Magenta Airport remains closed.


"We do expect some storm surges in this. And since it's a category three system it's also a hurricane," Mr Prasad said. "It's a category three system that is heading towards them, and we are expecting damages to infrastructure too." Mr Prasad said on its current track the cyclone was likely to impact New Caledonia for the next 30 to 48 hours.

Aircalin selects Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan Engines for Airbus A320neo Order

Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. and Aircalin, the flag carrier airline of New Caledonia, today announced the selection of the Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine to power the airline's commitment for two Airbus A320neo aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2020. "We are happy to select the Pratt & Whitney GTF engine to power our Airbus A320neo aircraft," said Didier Tappero, chief executive officer at Aircalin. "This engine was the clear choice in terms of fuel efficiency and Pratt & Whitney service and support. We're looking forward to serving our passengers with this incredibly quiet aircraft."


Aircalin currently operates two Bombardier DHC-6-300 aircraft with Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A engines, as well as Airbus A320 aircraft with V2500 engines by IAE International Aero Engines AG, a multinational aero engine consortium whose shareholders comprise Pratt & Whitney; Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH; Japanese Aero Engines Corporation; and MTU Aero Engines GmbH.


"Pratt & Whitney was proud to power Aircalin's early flights with the PW4000-powered Airbus A310 aircraft," said Rick Deurloo, senior vice president of sales, marketing and customer support at Pratt & Whitney. "We're pleased that they have selected the GTF engine, and we look forward to continuing our relationship for years to come. Since entering into service in early 2016, the GTF engine has demonstrated its promised ability to reduce fuel burn by 16 percent, to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 50 percent to the regulatory standard, and to lower the noise footprint by 75 percent.

Aircalin to grow capacity as fleet is renewed, driving tourism growth for New Caledonia

New Caledonia’s Aircalin is preparing to renew its entire jet fleet following orders for two A330-900neos and two A320neos. The small Pacific island airline will use the new generation aircraft to improve its product and expand capacity across its network.

Aircalin’s capacity should increase by at least 12%, and potentially up to 20%, over the next few years, providing an opportunity for growth in New Caledonia’s tourism industry. Visitor numbers to the French territory have grown by only 12% over the past decade.

Aircalin could pursue expansion in Australia, which has emerged as the fastest growing and second largest source market for New Caledonia (after France). The airline may also use the new fleet of A330-900s to launch services to China. The Chinese have not yet discovered New Caledonia as a tourist destination, but there is huge potential if the right partnerships and marketing programmes are implemented.
