Volcanic Activity

The Puyehue-CordonCaulle Volcano has been activated since early June, and the
volcanic ashes had reached Australia and New Zealand, urging the cancelation of
outbound flights from Melbourne, with affected travellers estimated over 8,000. The
ashes were predicted to remain affecting the nations for days. The Qantas Airline
approved refund for cancelation while the Air New Zealand remained flights between
the two nations but would keep track of the situation.
