Strike prompts cancellation of New Caledonia flights

10:44 am on 30 January 2014

Strike action by air controllers in New Caledonia has forced the domestic airline to cancel most of its flights today.

Air Caledonie says 13 of today's 20 services from or to Noumea cannot go ahead.

The French High Commission has invoked its powers to assure a minimum service to reduce disruption to air travel.
