02 July 2020
Air Vanuatu announced today it will operate its first outbound repatriation flight on Friday, 03 July 2020.
With support from the French Embassy in Vanuatu and the Government of New-Caledonia, the airline is returning nine French Nationals from Port-Vila to Noumea.
“This is our first international passenger flight since Air Vanuatu temporarily suspended all its international services on 23 March 2020 with the closure of Vanuatu’s borders,” said Mr. Joseph Laloyer, Air Vanuatu Acting Chief Executive Officer.
“We are very appreciative to our friends at the French Embassy for trusting Vanuatu’s national airline on this service. It is a positive step on the road to our international aviation recovery.”
No passengers are expected for uplift on the return leg.
The next cargo flight to Noumea is scheduled on Friday 24 July 2020.
