La Tontouta Airport Mini Guide

Why Should I fly to New Caledonia?
Many people travel there from Australia, New Zealand and from Asia because New Caledonia offers a host of different experiences in a relatively compact area. Some come for the beaches and the scuba diving on the world’s second longest coral reef. Others come to see the flora and fauna of the tropical rainforests whilst yet more visit the savannah lands of the west coast. Island hopping is popular too with several islands or groups offering different landscapes and adventures.

How do I get to La Tontouta Airport?
La Tontouta is the name of the busiest airport in New Caledonia but even so it’s not overrun with tourists. The airport handled around half a million passengers last year with the majority coming from Australia and other Pacific islands. If travelling from Europe, you can only leave from Paris Charles de Gaulle and so most European travellers will need to make a connection in France. The airport is some thirty miles away from the city of Noumea and transfers can be made by bus although car hire is the most popular method.

What is the Airport Like?
Surprisingly for a small airport, facilities are very good and air bridges take you from your plane to the terminal. There are plenty of facilities for arriving and departing tourists together with friendly and helpful staff.
