New Caledonia air traffic disturbed

1:51 pm on 31 March 2016

New Caledonia's domestic airline has cancelled several of today's flights amid a strike warning by French air traffic controllers.

The airline had brought some of its flights forward and others have been delayed.

The strike is set to go ahead on Friday and might affect international flights as well.

Flights from and to Ouvea have been halted for two days because of a dispute over the contract of two baggage handlers.
