Repatriation flight cancellations ruin Christmas for Tongan RSE workers

From Morning Report, 6:22 am on 26 November 2021

Hundreds of Tongan RSE workers, stranded in New Zealand for two years, want to get home to their families, but the government says, not yet.

This week the Tonga government called off repatriations flights, originally scheduled for last Tuesday and then next Tuesday.

They say there will not be any flights before the new year.
