The "Luengoni" is the second A330neo of the New Caledonia company's fleet. This first commercial service inaugurates a new generation of aircraft in French Polynesia and on the tarmac of Tahiti's FAA'A airport, which was just delivered last September.
The A330neo operated by AirCalin is equipped with a three-class configuration with 291 seats in cabin (7% more seats at the destination): 26 Business, 21 Premium Eco and 244 Economy. The "Premium Economy" cabin makes its debut in the AirCalin fleet. The aircraft is also equipped with a high-speed Internet connection that offers Wi-Fi onboard: the company is demonstrating its willingness to comply with international standards.
In addition to a revised level of comfort, AirCalin is introducing a very competitive and modern aircraft on the Nouméa-Papeete destination: a structure optimized in terms of weight and new generation engines, leading to a significant reduction in gas consumption, combined with a larger range of operation.
This A330neo is the first of two ordered by the airline in October 2017, as part of the renewal of its regional and long-haul fleet. Thanks to this order, Airbus has successfully implemented this new generation of aircraft in the Australia-Pacific region.
In close partnership with ADT, AirCalin wanted to mark the event by presenting the latest in its fleet to all its local partners (travel agencies and local TO, Ground Handler, civil aviation, local and national authorities, etc.) who had the great pleasure of discovering the brand new arrival at AirCalin.
It should be mentioned that the geometry of the aircraft forced the ADT team of technicians to assess the technical acceptability of the equipment and especially the protocol concerning the parking stations.
ADT wishes "Maeva" and all success to "Luengoni".
