**Abstract**

In the paper, we introduce a new class of noncyclic $\varphi$-contractions as a generalization of the class of noncyclic contractions which was first introduced in the paper [R. Esp´ınola, M. Gabeleh, On the structure of minimal sets of relatively nonexpansive mappings, Numerical Functional Analysis and Optimization 34 (8), 845-860, 2013] and study the existence, uniqueness and convergence of a fixed point for such class of noncyclic mapping in the framework of uniformly convex Banach spaces. We obtain existence results of the best proximity points for cyclic $\varphi$-contractions as a consequence of our main theorems.
