    If I am right, then although long-haul in terms of distance, this island is a part of France and of the EU. Flights from Paris are considered ‘internal’ flights so I am sure plenty of (mainly) French holidaymakers will have taken advantage of that fact.

    I believe you are right. Such flights are called “TOM”, territoires outre mer, or overseas territories.

    Yes – the same applies to French Guiana. Hence the trick question about which countries border the EU…. Brazil and Suriname being two of them.

    Then it must be RUN.

    Very probably indeed. On a side note, I did not realise Roland Garros, an obscure French WW1 pilot who indirectly gave his name to a major tennis tournament, was from La RĂ©union…

    Roland Garros was in no way an obscure pilot!! before writing you should inform yourself… he was the first to cross the Mediterranean by plane!! among other exploits

    Errrr Wake Island has a very low population and few or no tourists (I think the Air Force run it), good try anyway.

    Noumea

    that was my thought – but only based on the WW2 clue.

    Yes Noumea.
    Very French and predictably expensive.

    This is a little more difficult -perhaps.
