WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, September 22, 2017) – A pilots' strike in New Caledonia has prompted Air Calin to cancel Saturday's flight from Noumea to Port Vila.

The strike comes amid an ongoing dispute over conditions and pay following a restructure.

It led to the sudden cancellation on Thursday of the Air Calin service between Noumea and Sydney.

Today's flight to Nadi and Wallis was postponed until tomorrow while flights to other connections, including Auckland, were delayed.

Air Calin apologised to all affected passengers.
