Air travel in Patagonia

Chaiten - Reuters
The eruption at Chaiten has now begun to have widescale effects on the region of Patagonia, beyond the ashfall. Air travel has been disrupted due to the amount of ash in the air. It is well-documented that ash posed a significant hazard to aircraft, so this seems like a wise move on the parts of Argentina and Chile. 
Not much else new to report beyond that the fact that this eruption is now into day 6 without any signs of letting up. Impressive to say the least.
