The airport was modern, clean and very organised. We arrived in the morning from Noumea for our international flight and Staff were friendly and service was quick. No fuss about a bit of excess carry-on luggage, and everything run smoothly. We had a very decent breakfast in a spacious section of the airport. The queue to the departure gates and customs was a bit long and there was a happy crowd near the ice cream and craft shops.
Came back from Noumea in April 2013. Airport is actually very new, bright with glass ceilings and had free (patchy) wifi. There was an information counter, post office box and several shuttle/hotel counters. There is a cafe/bar both inside customs and oustide that serves sandwiches, coffee, ice cream and alcohol.
