After several weeks, the Carte Transport 2023 game ended on January 4 with the draw of the winners. Congratulations to them and thank you all for your participation!
A brand new game
As you may have noticed, the Transport Card has evolved a lot in 2023. To facilitate the procedures, it is now completely dematerialized: from the submission of the application to the receipt of the Transport Card in PDF format or via sms. Beneficiaries of the scheme now receive their Transport Card only 48 hours after submitting your file.
To mark the occasion, the company organized a game reserved for Transport Card applicants. Four plane tickets were therefore at stake (1 return ticket per island of residence) between November 17 and December 31, 2022. Upon simple registration when submitting the application, each participant registered on the draw list to win a plane ticket for his island of residence. You were more than 3,000 registered so thank you all for your participation.
Our 4 winners were therefore drawn and were able to leave with their plane tickets offered by the company. Good news to start the year off right.
Applications are still open!
If the game is over, applications for the Transporte Card are still open (and will be throughout the year).
To make your request, go to our dedicated page. All you have to do is fill out one form per person and attach the required supporting documents to each request.
You will also find all the information relating to the device: documents to be provided, period of validity, tutorial for booking tickets online, etc.

After two years of work between the two Caledonian companies, Aircalin and Air Calédonie have signed a code share agreement which strengthens the partnership between the two companies.
The code-share between Air Calédonie and Aircalin
This large-scale project first required significant preparation and testing work in order to be able to apply the negotiated agreement. It is now done. This new code-share agreement will then allow the two companies to share its code on flights operated by the other company.
Offer new destinations to international customers
Concretely, during the 1st quarter of 2023, Aircalin will be able to sell tickets on Air Calédonie domestic flights directly to its foreign customers and on its own flight number. For example, an Australian customer will be able to buy a Sydney-Lifou on an Aircalin flight number from start to finish, with an itinerary in the same booking file and on the same transport contract, from a single travel agency. This represents a real opportunity to develop international tourism sales for Air Calédonie in particular and for New Caledonia in general. The customer will have a simpler and above all more integrated service, allowing him to prepare his stay serenely.
For the first time, the Trail Air Calédonie de Maré took place at the tribe of Eni on December 10th. This race attracted more than a hundred who came to compete on this brand new course which allowed them to (re)discover the Nengone country.
Runners competed for victory on 3 different courses according to their level: the 19 km Grand Raid, the 8 km Mini Raid and the 3 km family course for young and old! A race in an idyllic setting with a departure from Yédjélé beach and an arrival at Eni beach. For the men, it was Eric Concé, who had already won first place in the Raid Air Calédonie de l’Ile des Pins, who won the 19km event in 1:29:05. Jeremy Marie and Brice Vannier complete the podium in second and third place. On the women’s side, Angie Le Scoarnec arrives in first position after only in 2:03:29, ahead of Marion Jaumaux and Chloé Colamaria. Congratulations to our athletes !
An event under the sign of conviviality
In parallel with the Trail, participants could also go to the Littoral festival organized by the Eni tribe the same weekend. For this second edition, the runners who came to the site were able to discover the many seafood products of the tribe, take part in nautical outings, stroll around the market and enjoy the activities offered for the occasion. It was also at the Fête du Littoral that the Trail award ceremony took place. Air Calédonie is happy to have been able to contribute to the success of this first edition of the Trail de Maré, organized by its partner Challenge Organisation. To congratulate all the participants were able to leave with a lot of gifts in the colors of the company.
Congratulations to all participants and see you soon!
Following a special request from fifty Australian travellers, Air Calédonie has operated today a special flight from Tontouta to Isle of Pines, in partnership with the Mariott group and in coordination with Qantas.
A special request from our Australian neighbors
Within the framework of a work and relaxation seminar organized at the Méridien hotel, located on the Isle of Pines, the need to transport passengers directly to their destination was justified.
Discussions began a few months ago in order to formalize an agreement and allow the company to put in place the operational actions necessary for the smooth running of an international flight: management of check-in, boarding, baggage loading, welcome by the flight crew…
A successful teamwork
Everyone have mobilized to ensure the succes of the flight and be sure that passengers’ connection will be carried out in good conditions. The CCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry) has aslo been involved in order to offer a smooth journey within the airport, even if immigration and customs constraints must be respected.
We wish a good stay to our travellers and we are waiting for the next appointement on November 19th for their return back to Australia!
