Flights to and from Noumea, New Caledonia

Hello,

Please check out the “how to get there” page of the 2014 Annual Conference website to get an idea of how much it may cost to travel to Noumea.

I recently uploaded the Noumea Airline Schedule, valid from 06th June to 31st August 2014; this offers some information to help prepare your travel plan.

Here’s looking forward to meeting you in Noumea in September.
