Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways flights as normal despite volcano eruption

Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways have operated normal flight services on Monday to Australia and New Zealand as volcanic ash cloud breaks in Chile, Gulf News has reported. The airspace restrictions around New Zealand forced Emirates into cancelling two of its service on Sunday between Sydney and Christchurch. "Emirates will continue to monitor the ash cloud caused by Mt. Cordon Caulle in Chile closely, and is currently liaising with the relevant authorities regarding its movement," an Emirates spokesperson told the daily.
