Hi everybody,

I remember reading in the news a while ago that AirCalin (Air Caledonie International) of French Polynesia had ordered or leased one Airbus A330-200 directly from Airbus or second-hand to replace its current single A310-300. Does anyone have more information on this? I checked their website and they curently have a fleet of 1 A310-300, 1 B737-300 and 1 DHC-6 Twin Otter.

Hi A388,

I read that, too, about nine months ago. The article also stated that the Aircalin A330-200 would replace AF's A340 on the NRT-NOU route thanks to a code share agreement. Since then, I haven't heard anything new. According to Aircalin's website the A332 has not yet arrived.

Btw, New Caledonia is not part of French Polynesia, it is a different 'TOM'.

According to Bill Harms' site Air Calédonie (I suppose this is Aircalin) wil get not one but two A330-200s, for delivery in November and December of this year.

When Aircalin acquired the A310 I remember reading that the plan was to replace it with an A330 if Air France decided to hand the the NOU-NRT route over to them to operate as a code-share. That way they could offer more seats, etc. It was phrased in the few places I read it as an 'if' not a 'when.'

btw New Caledonia is part of Melanesia not Polynesia...
