NEW CODE-SHARE AGREEMENT BETWEEN AIRCALIN AND AIR TAHITI NUI
Aircalin and Air Tahiti Nui have submitted an application for codeshare operations to the US Department of Transportation. If approved, it will signal the start of a new partnership between the two French international airlines of the Pacific and will facilitate travel between New Caledonia and the United States. This agreement will allow each of the 2 companies to place its code on flights operated by the other carrier, and thus offer customers a new link Noumea - Papeete- Los Angeles.
" We are proud to have completed this first step in the implementation of a proposed cooperation which allows us to strengthen our partnership with Air Tahiti Nui. This agreement makes sense when you look at the complementarity of our networks and will give customers in New Caledonia better access to the US market, "said Didier Tappero, CEO of Aircalin . »
Michel Monvoisin, CEO of Air Tahiti Nui adds: “The ties that link Polynesians to their Caledonian cousins are ancient and deep. The signature of this code-share agreement between Aircalin and Air Tahitti Nui, the flag carriers for both countries, will further strengthen our bond. It is also a great joy and pride to offer to our fellow citizen’s new travel opportunities by combining our networks”.
Subject to regulatory approval, code sharing will commence in the coming weeks on the Noumea- Papeete route. The flights, whether direct or via Auckland will be marketed by both Aircalin and Air Tahiti Nui which will allow both carriers to offer their customers three weekly flights between New Caledonia and French Polynesia.
