  A "Mile High" above Noumea
by Geisha_Girl

The official air carrier to New Caledonia is AIRCALIN, a partner carrier to AIR FRANCE. (Calin is "cuddle" in French)

The main international airport, Tantouta Airport, is located in Noumea, which is about an hour drive from the main city centre.

The only direct flights into Noumea arrive from either Japan (Tokyo/Osaka), Australia (Sydney/Brisbane), New Zealand (Auckland), or Tahiti (Papeete).

If you are flying in from the US or France, be prepared for a stopover and a long flight.
