New Caledonia’s international carrier Aircalin will have its first charter flights from China in February in a bid to test expanding its market.

Aircalin has already sold its seats for the first flight between Hangzhou and Noumea in an arrangement with a Chinese tour operator, reports RNZI.

The airline wants to see if it can establish a regular service attracting Chinese visitors to the top end of the market.

The move comes as China has given New Caledonia approved destination status.
