The Aircalin airline, based in Caledonia, has recently signed an agreement with Airbus to buy two new wide-body A330-900 jets and two Airbus A320neo aircrafts. The airline has decided to use the new A320neo jets on the route between Auckland and Noumea. On that particular route the airline operates flights at least three or four times a week.
The airline will use the A330neo jets to improve their existing services to Japan and also to operate on some new routes to China.
The chief executive of Aircalin, Didier Tappero has informed that as part of their plan to boost tourism to New Caledonia, Aircalin has made a strategic decision to renew its complete fleet with the A320neo and the A330neo to grow routes and connect New Caledonia to the region.
He has also informed that the new aircraft would burn less fuel and lower the operational costs and offer their loyal passengers the highest standards in cabin comfort.
The Airbus executive vice president, Europe, Africa and Pacific, Mr. Christopher Buckley has informed that the authorities of Airbus are delighted as the airline ordered the new jets to increase tourist traffic to New Caledonia.
According to Buckley, the growing tourism market in that region could force the airline to buy another A330 in near future.
