Safety is our priority; excellence is our commitment. Constantly seeking to provide an ever-higher quality of customer service rivaling that of top major airlines, Aircalin ensures that their operations meet the most exacting requirements laid down by European standards. They have had a successful commercial agreement with Air France-KLM for over 10 years, and are a partner in the SkyTeam frequent flyer program. Aircalin has worked actively to both initiate and conclude codeshare agreements and special prorate agreements aimed at offering customers a full panoply of travel routes linking New Caledonia to the world via Nouméa. The newest codeshare partner Air Tahiti Nui provides over the water lift from Los Angeles International Airport via Papeete and Auckland to New Caledonia. These routes maybe plated on Aircalin’s two letter code SB to receive a 5% commission.
The safety and security of aviation operations constitute the number one priority of the airline, its senior management and every member of its staff. They lie at the heart of the airline’s quality policy and commitment to guarantee our customers the best possible conditions when they travel with us.
