This was my second experience with Air Calin and this year it was so good I had to write a review. The flights were on time with a helpful and friendly service, especially the return from Nouméa on Tuesday 25th October. The breakfast served was delicious and I was very happy to be able to have bacon, something no longer...

Funnily enough even though we departed from Australia all of the announcements were in French and no English leaving us wondering what was happening. Once on board the staff speak both English and French. Short flight with no in flight entertainment, food was average as with most flights. Service was friendly and efficient. I travel this route regularly for business...

Relatively short flight and no point to take biz class ( the premium was excessive ). Service was OK and nothing to complaint or recommend....

We found the whole experience of flying Aircalin enjoyable. All staff were friendly and helpful from checkin to departure to leaving. The meals were great with a French theme

A very good inflight product - also a new inflight entertainment system in place - no screens , just download an application on your mobile device before the flight and you can access many entertainment choices through USB during the flight. It was a morning departure so breakfast was served - the portion was somewhat smallish....

Fuss free checkin and boarding.to avoid gate issues with carry on bags they clear them at checkin. Basic in flight service but it is full service with wines and spirits, only champagne is extra. Bit slow on delivering baggage in Noumea though. Overall a god service and representing value.

An average flight, was very full but was served in a timely manner. Food was nice and service was ok. Not very generous with drinks and only came by once during the flight. Legroom is ok if you are a small person; otherwise definitely book an aisle seat. No in flight entertainment so be prepared and bring something to keep...
