Volcanic Ash Australia's Airlines


SYDNEY (AP) -- Airlines are returning to the skies from some of Australia's largest airports as a volcanic cloud that has forced two days of flight cancellations clears over southern Australia.

Australian flagship carrier Qantas and rival Virgin Australia resumed early morning flights from the southern city of Adelaide on Wednesday.

Qantas and its budget subsidiary Jetstar have told customers that flights through Melbourne, Australia's second largest city, and the national capital, Canberra, will resume late Wednesday morning with Virgin returning to the air by noon.

In Sydney, Australia's largest city, and neighboring Newcastle, Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin will resume services Wednesday afternoon.
