Volcano continues to affect air routes / U.S. signals it wants better relations with EC

Ecuador’s civil aviation authority continues to re-route flights between Quito, Cuenca and Guayaquil to avoid the Tungurahua volcano smoke plume. The plume of ash, smoke and steam, rises almost five kilometers above the 16,000 foot volanco.

Flight routes have been shifted to the west, adding five to 15 minutes to flight times between cities.

Although some in-country flights have been cancelled as a result of the volcano, most have continued on schedule.
