UPDATE: flight cancellations from Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin Australia & Emirates for Melbourne, +NZ, +Tasmania.

Qantas has issued a flight cancellation order for all services in and out
of Melbourne and Auckland from 6pm local time today, Sunday June 12,

while Virgin Australia has cancelled all domestic and international services
into and out of Melbourne from 7pm tonight, as precautionary measures
due to the ash cloud from the eruption of Chile's Cordon Caulle volcano.

Earlier today Qantas suspended all flights to and from Tasmania, as well as Christchurch, Queenstown and Wellington in New Zealand.

Maps of the ash cloud from the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) locations in Darwin and Wellington clearly show problems overnight, so travellers with Monday morning flights should check with their airline later tonight for further information.
