In Argentina and Uruguay, hundreds of flights have been canceled as winds blew clouds of ash from the volcano to the East. All flights from Buenos Aires, Argentina and most out of Montevideo, Uruguay were canceled on Thursday, according to an AFP report.
On Saturday, strong winds had carried the ash cloud far enough that Qantas and other airlines had been forced to cancel flights from Australia to New Zealand, as well as flights from the Australian mainland to Tasmania. On Sunday, Qantas and Virgin Australia had also cancelled flights to Melbourne.
