North Korea missile tests impact Air France routes

New Caledonian travellers have been advised that Air France has changed its flight path because of North Korea's missile tests.

That follows reports that last week's ballistic missile flew within about 100 kilometres of an Air France flight between Paris and Tokyo.

RNZI reports the Tokyo route is the standard way for travel between France and Noumea.

Air France said it was the first time it faced such a risk and had therefore widened the security zone around North Korea
