Dissipating ash cloud cancels five-day airline suspension

MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, June 26, 2011) - Australian airlines will resume flights to and from New Zealand from Monday, as volcanic ash plumes from eruptions in Chile finally move away.

Qantas says it will begin flying to and from the New Zealand cities of Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown from early Monday.

Flights to Wellington are expected to resume in the afternoon.

Jetstar says services to New Zealand destinations, except to and from Wellington, would be normal from Monday.

Virgin Australia said its Pacific Blue flights across the Tasman would restart from Monday, adding it was targeting 10:00 am for the resumption of services to and from Wellington.

Services had been suspended for five days due to the ash cloud.
