Alaska Airlines Cancels Anchorage Flights As Result of Mt Augustine Volcanic Ash

Alaska Airlines canceled all flights to and from Anchorage, Monday, and early Tuesday morning. The flights were canceled as a safety precaution related to the pattern of ash at altitude created by the Mt. Augustine volcano.

As of 6 p.m. Alaska time, Monday evening, 36 flights were canceled. The airline is monitoring the pattern of ash at altitude on a continuous basis and anticipates resuming Anchorage flights later today (Tuesday).

"We recognize these cancellations will significantly impact passengers intending to travel to or from Anchorage," said Bill MacKay, Alaska's senior vice president for Alaska.

"These decisions are guided by our commitment to safety. We are making every effort to accommodate passengers whose flight schedules have been disrupted."
