Metropolitan airport resumes normal activity
Activity in the Metropolitan airport is slowly resuming its normal pace as Aerolíneas Argentinas, Austral and Lan airlines announced they resumed their operations, after cancelling them due to volcanic ash cloud.
Earlier today airlines slowly resumed their activities, after Lan decided to lift the ban in all its flights that had taken effect last night. Aerolíneas Argentinas, Sol, Pluna and Tam airlines resumed their flights as well.
Thus, the first aerolíneas Argentinas flight departed at 6 pm headed towards Sao Paulo, Brazil. The national airline plans to carry out all flights scheduled for today progressively.
In contrast, it was announced that flights going out of Ezeiza international airport were running operations as normal, after many operations had been cancelled yesterday. The airlines informed that due to some flights being brought forward from yesterday, there could be some delays in air traffic.
Yesterday flights were cancelled from the afternoon onward by Aerolíneas Argentinas, Austral and Lan Argentina out of Aeroparque and Ezeiza, when the volcanic ash returned.
