Safety concerns created by a volcanic ash cloud have forced airlines serving the Asia to North America trade lane to cut numerous flights, leading to reduced capacity and increased rates. Bad weather in Shanghai and Hong Kong is causing further complications. It is unknown when the affected airline operations will return to normal.
We will continue to monitor this situation closely and advise accordingly.
