Report: LAN Cancels 39 Flights Due to Volcanic Ash Cloud

The Associated Press is reporting that Chilean airline LAN Airlines has canceled 39 flights in Argentina and Chile due to a giant ash cloud emitted by the Cordon Caulle volcano.

The canceled flights include those linking the capital of Santiago and the Chilean cities of Concepcion and Temuco, according to the report. The ash has also canceled flights between the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires and cities in Argentine Patagonia. Flights between Santiago and Buenos Aires have been restored.

Hundred of flights around the world have been canceled since the volcano about 600 miles south of Santiago erupted on June 4. The ash can damage electronic components of aircraft and harm engines.
