The two Sud SE.210 Caravelle 10Rs were ordered specifically to serve the Noumea-Sydney route in the Pacific. The first to arrive, Caravelle F-BNRA (msn 201), was delivered on January 26, 1966 and entered service the following month to West Africa. An interim Caravelle (F-BOEE) was leased until Caravelle 10R F-BNRB (msn 222) was delivered on March 7, 1967. RB was the first to be sold, joining SATA as HB-ICQ in 1972 and then CTA in 1978. Her final operator was Istanbul Airlines as TC-ASA whom she joined in January 1987 and served with until November 1991.
Interestingly Air Caledonie would operate the Caravelle on the same Noumea-Sydney route over 20 years later.
