On Monday, Air New Zealand suspended all flights to and from Vanuatu because of the condition of the runway at the airport in the capital, Port Vila.
The airline’s flight operations general manager Stephen Hunt said: “The condition of the runway at Port Vila has been gradually deteriorating and we have taken the difficult decision to suspend services before the situation becomes unsafe.”
Air New Zealand said it would take passengers who are already in Vanuatu home on a final flight tomorrow, and refund people who have booked flights.
This could be disastrous for the tourism industry, which has been recovering from Cyclone Pam last year.
