Air ser­vices to New Cale­do­nia’s Loy­alty Is­lands have been in dis­ar­ray with an­gry pas­sen­gers block­ing a ter­mi­nal and poor weather ham­per­ing flights.

With the school hol­i­days end­ing, flights were fully booked but they have been af­fected by lots of de­lays and can­cel­la­tions..

In Mare, some dis­grun­tled pas­sen­gers blocked the air­port while de­mand­ing that Air Cale­donie put on ex­tra flights and oth­ers were try­ing to travel with­out hav­ing a reser­va­tion.The air­line says it added ex­tra flights for the top travel sea­son but not all sched­uled ser­vices could be run.

It says since Fri­day three flights have been forced to re­turn be­cause poor vis­i­bil­ity made it im­pos­si­ble to land safely.
