Situation in New Caledonia

Situation in New Caledonia

Discussions on the evolution of electoral conditions in New Caledonia have led to significant protests and disturbances among the local population.

A substantial security deployment has been put in place, and a curfew is in effect from 8 PM to 6 AM.

Some international and local flights have resumed under strict conditions.

Traffic is still disrupted, and transport services are limited. Access to shops and services in Nouméa is available during adjusted hours only.

La Tontouta International Airport is now partially open during daytime, access subject to conditions.

From 5 June, Aircalin is gradually resuming a limited number of its commercial flights. The list of authorised flights, regularly updated according to the situation and access, can be found at Aircalin Flight Information. Flights that are not listed are cancelled.
