Ash Cloud Continues Disrupting Flights in New Zealand

The New Zealand Herald is reporting that the Chilean volcanic ash cloud is still disrupting airline services, with flights across the Tasman Sea being grounded.

Jetstar, after resuming services on Sunday, has announced it would again be canceling flights because of the ash cloud. Flights to and from Christchurch and Queenstown and Queenstown to Auckland on Wednesday have all been canceled.

Qantas flights from Sydney to Queenstown have also been delayed for at least 24 hours.

Air New Zealand, however, will continue to run flights as scheduled. Domestic flights to and from Invercargill, Christchurch, Dunedin, Queenstown and Timaru are still running as scheduled.
