Update: Volcanic ash cloud cleared, YVR flights back to normal

Passengers should check their flight status with their airlines before heading to the airport.
Flights at YVR are being impacted by a volcanic ash cloud.

The volcanic ash cloud that caused flight cancellations and delays at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) during Saturday night has now been cleared.

YVR tweeted at around 8 p.m. on Saturday evening that a "small number of" arrivals and departures were affected.

However, according to its latest update at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, the ash cloud has been cleared from the area and flights are "operating as scheduled."

The ash cloud had come from Eurasia's tallest active volcano, the Klyuchevskaya Sopka, which erupted on Wednesday.

Passengers should still check their flight statuses with airlines or through before going to the airport.
