Flights resume in Fairbanks following volcanic activity
Sixteen late-night and early-morning flights to Alaska were canceled due to another eruption of Redoubt late Monday.
Airplanes wrapped in a protective plastic sealant and stationed overnight in Anchorage were unwrapped this morning, inspected and prepared for passenger flights. The sealant is designed to protect aircraft from abrasive ash particles.
Travelers may check status of flights at www.alaskaair.com or 800-ALASKAAIR. The airline says delays and cancellations are still possible pending further volcanic activity.
