LAN gradually restored its flights to and from destination in Argentina

SANTIAGO, Chile 8 Jun. LAN Airlines is restoring its flights to and from Argentina gradually, after the suspensions announced as a result of the ash cloud that caused the eruption of Puyehue Chile, in the center of the country. Have already resumed routes to the cities of Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Córdoba.

The company cited by the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio regrets any inconvenience that may have caused to passengers, and ensures that it will take steps to provide they can reach their destinations. To this end it has established a telephone number - 24 hours - and has uploaded information to the website of the company.

Other companies in the sector, Brazil's TAM, have been also forced to cancel many flights by the security risk posed by the ash cloud, constantly changing direction and density. The Chilean authorities believe "very likely" to start ejecting lava Puyehue in the coming hours, but ruled that the near populated areas will be affected.
