Ash disrupts flights

Postby KarenS » Mon Mar 12, 2007 6:42 am

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico: Ash from the active Soufriere Hills volcano on the Caribbean island of Montserrat disrupted airport traffic Saturday in Puerto Rico, prompting delays and cancellations by several airlines.

Most of the problems were in the small airport in the southern city of Ponce, but four Delta Airlines flights were canceled in San Juan, on the north coast, said Fred Sosa, the general manager of the capital's Luis Munos Marin International Airport.

Most flights out of San Juan were unaffected, Sosa said.

A large cloud of dust from the Sahara Desert also was contributing to the poor visibility, said Miguel Calimano, general manager of Puerto Rico's regional airport system.
