Ezeiza, Aeroparque airports now operating normally
The dramatic situation created by the grounding of all flights in the region due to the volcanic ash cloud spewed by the Puyehue is gradually going back to normal in the City, with several airlines resuming their services in the Ezeiza and Aeroparque airports.
However, Patagonia bound flights, such as the ones headed to Comodoro Rivadavia, remain restricted, despite being canceled for over ten days.
Regarding San Carlos de Bariloche, one of the most affected cities by the ashes, officials announced that no airline would be flying there at least until next Tuesday.
With the arrival of rains in the City, both airports seemed to be operating at their most after noon, with most of the cancelled arrivals and departures landing or taking-off at a faster pace, while passengers let out a sigh of relief after so much stress.
Since Tuesday night, when the ahs cloud had faded from the metropolitan area thanks to the northern winds, several flights bound for Mexico, Miami and Madrid left from Ezeiza, while flights from Aeroparque only began operating on Wednesday morning.
Flights bound for San Juan, Salta Cordoba and Porto Alegre (Brazil) took off from Aeroparque in the morning.
Weather forecast services announced that the volcanic ash cloud was currently affecting the areas of Chubut and Rio Negro, and would not be returning to the Buenos Aires area until next Sunday.
