New Caledonia air traffic controllers threaten strike

7:38 am on 27 January 2014

Travellers in New Caledonia have been advised to check with their airlines to see if their flights are affected by a strike notice.

Air control staff said last week they would strike from this morning (9am NZ time) until Friday afternoon.

However, the civil aviation authority says basic cover will be organised to ensure services from abroad and also within the territory.
