Air Loyauté is a French airline operating in New Caledonia, primarily serving the Loyalty Islands. Founded with the goal of providing comprehensive air service to this region, the airline offers scheduled flights, medivac services, and charter options. With its main hub located at Nouméa Magenta Airport and a secondary hub at Lifou’s Ouanaham Airport, Air Loyauté has successfully bridged the gap between mainland New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands. The airline operates a fleet of five aircraft and connects eight domestic destinations, playing a vital role in the transportation infrastructure of New Caledonia.
Air Loyauté flies to eight domestic destinations, primarily focusing on connecting Nouméa with various locations in the Loyalty Islands. The airline’s main hub is Nouméa Magenta Airport, and it also operates from a secondary hub at Ouanaham Airport in Lifou. Other destinations include Koumac, Belep, Touho, Mare, Tiga, and Ouvea.
The airline’s fleet, as of June 2019, consists of three DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft, which can accommodate 19 passengers, and two B200 Raisbeck aircraft with a seating capacity for eight passengers. These aircraft are specifically designed to meet the demands of short-haul flights and less developed airstrips, making them ideal for Air Loyauté’s operational needs.
