AFKLMP Cargo and Aircalin expand partnership

Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) and New Caledonia-based Aircalin have expanded their partnership with the addition of flights to the archipelago via Singapore.

The expanded partnership covers a new service to Nouméa in New Caledonia from Singapore that then connects with Paris.

The new Nouméa-Singapore leg will be operated two-three times per week by Aircalin.

Air France will operate the flights between Paris CDG and Singapore.

AFKLMP will sell capacity into New Caledonia and Aircalin will market the capacity in the opposite direction.

The two carriers have for many years worked together on services between Paris and Nouméa via Japan.

Benjamin Etcheverry, commercial director France AFKLMP Cargo, said: “This extension is in line with the partnership we have been developing for several years. We are very pleased to be able to offer new air cargo opportunities to our customers bound for New Caledonia with Aircalin from the Air France – KLM network.”

Arnaud Gervais, commercial and marketing director Aircalin, added: “We look forward to strengthening our partnership and adding connecting flights to Singapore, which will allow, in addition to Tokyo flights, more options for freight to and from Nouméa but also bring New York closer together.

“Caledonia from a number of Asian markets, conducive to the development of Caledonian export. Like tourism, the launch of this newline is undoubtedly an opportunity for the business world and more exchanges for economic players.”
