Planes full of Aussies to visit New Caledonia

Australian airline Qantas has given more reasons and more flyer points to those travelling to the Pacific paradise of New Caledonia.

Up until July 31, frequent flyers will have access to more reward seats with over 100 flights available between Sydney, Brisbane and Nouméa.

On these flights every seat in every cabin, including business seats, can be booked as a classic flight reward – for travel from August to November. Seats on these flights can also be purchased with cash.

Qantas operates five return flights per week with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft between Australia and New Caledonia – a weekly service from Brisbane and four services a week from Sydney.

It also codeshares with Aircalin on an additional seven return flights per week where extra classic reward seats will also be available from Sydney and Brisbane.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said flights remain frequent flyers’ favourite way to use their points.

“We continue to see incredibly strong demand across domestic and international travel as frequent flyers use the Qantas points they saved during the pandemic to book reward seats in record numbers, Ms Wirth said.
