Price hike at New Caledonia's domestic airline

4:14 pm on 20 September 2010

New Caledonia's loss-making domestic airline will raise some of its fares from tomorrow.

The fare increase at Air Caledonie will affect the ticket price for children under the age of 12 and the flat rate for issuing a ticket.

According to local press reports, freight costs will also go up in what will be the first increase since 2005.

In the past two years, the airline has been given a subsidy of just over three million US dollars.
