Chilean Volcano Continues To Disrupt Travel

Chilean Volcano Continues To Disrupt Travel

June 15, 2011

Chile’s Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcano continues to disrupt travel in South America, although activity has lessened  in recent days.

Travel in Argentina and Uruguay has been the most severely impacted, with airport closures yesterday in Buenos Aires and Montevideo.

While many towns in Chile have been doused with ash, air travel has been less affected.  But as the ash cloud spreads over the Pacific, travel between Australia and South American is the latest casualty.  Qantas in particular has chosen not to operate under the current conditions.

If you are scheduled to fly to Buenos Aires or Montevideo within the next week, please keep in close contact with your Exito agent or the airline.  While the situation seems to be improving, there may still be flight cancellations or delays.
