Pacific Blue, an airline of the Virgin Australia Group of Airlines, has suspended services into and out New Zealand because of the volcanic ash plume.

Group Executive Operations Sean Donohue said the plume that had been in the Christchurch, Wellington and Dunedin regions had moved further north, necessitating the schedule changes.

These cancellations are in addition to the six flights cancelled yesterday to from Australia to Christchurch and Wellington. Guests should check the website for regular updates of information, Mr. Donohue said.
