Chilean ash cloud returns, disrupts New Zealand air travel
Volcanic ash from a weeks-old eruption in Chile has returned to New Zealand causing more disruption to travel, says airlines.
Jetstar and Qantas have cancelled flights to and from the South Island town of Queenstown on Wednesday.
Air New Zealand said however that with the cloud hovering at more than 7,000 metres it was safe to continue flying.
Ash from the Puyehue volcano in southern Chile has wrapped around the southern hemisphere several times since the eruptions began earlier this month, playing havoc with plane travel.
