Volcanic Ash Cloud Disrupts Flights
An ash cloud from a Chilean volcano is disrupting air travel in Australia and New Zealand.
“Volcanic ash from the eruption of the Puyehue Cordon Caulle volcano in Chile continues to cause flight disruptions to the Qantas network,” the airline said in a statement.
“At Qantas safety is our first priority and a number of flights have been canceled or rerouted to avoid the volcanic ash cloud.”
Qantas and Jetstar suspended Wednesday flights to and from Queenstown, Christchurch and Wellington.
Qantas flights between Sydney and Buenos Aires are delayed.
