Buying ticket from Wallis to Futuna?

Return ticket from Wallis to Futuna as quoted for a trip in one month is 230 EUR.
I doubt this is how much locals are paying.

Anyone with knowledge of a cheaper way to buy such tickets?

Going to Wallis & Futuna

I was wondering whether anybody could quickly help me with a conundrum; I'm currently in the Solomon Islands and have flights booked to Vanuatu and New Caledonia; I then plan on going to Wallis & Futuna, is it prudent to book the flights now on the internet or perhaps wait until I get to New Caledonia and perhaps get a deal on both islands, I can currently get a return flight to Wallis for XPF 79,000 but wanted to spend 2 night on each island
If anybody could let me know, that would be…

Going to Wallis

I will be going to Wallis in mid-Jan. on a side trip from New Caledonia. I will be there for 3 days on Wallis only. I chose to stay at the Hotel Albatros from a link a few threads below. I am not in need of any particular travel info but I thought I'd launch a thread for any general discussion of travel to Wallis as threads here are rare enough. If someone wants a postcard from there I can oblige, for a similar postcard in return.

It certainly is a very obscure destination. It is one of…

Anyone been to Futuna recently?

Does anyone know if there are still guesthouses / hotels on Futuna? Older posts suggest there were hotels on Futuna. But I tried searching for signs that they are still around, and could find nothing. Someone told me there is a Hôtel Fiafia on Futuna. But nobody replied to the e-mail address I had for Hôtel Fiafia.

Has anyone been to Futuna recently and can verify which options exist for accommodations?

Thank you.

Getting to Futuna?

LP guidebook mentions that Aircalin flies from Wallis to Futuna twice a day, 5 days a week. Is this still a case? I can't find any info on its website.

Thanks.

It's a beautiful island with friendly people and is very slow paced. There's hardly any tourism. Even finding someone to take us to a small island in the lagoon was difficult. During weekends when…

Getting to Wallis

I have been trying to get infomation on travelling to Wallis from Fiji. According to the Aircalin website they do fly this route, and it looks like I could even book a direct return from Wallis to Nadi. When however I choose Nadi as the start point of my trip, I cannot book flights to Wallis, but only to Noumea. Does anybody know what options there are?
