12,000 travelers deprived of their trip and 108 flights cancelled: that’s the toll of the riots that have shaken New Caledonia for the past fortnight. Repatriations have now begun.

Over 530 people have already been repatriated. Australia and New Zealand also began transporting their nationals last Tuesday. Repatriation flights to mainland France began on Saturday May 25. Travelers took off on military aircraft for Australia and New Zealand. To reach mainland France, they will then have to take a commercial flight. On Friday, Vanuatu nationals were evacuated by French military aircraft to Port-Vila.
