Alaska Airlines (Seattle/Tacoma) has suspended all flights north of Anchorage due to the eruption of Mount Redoubt on March 23 and the airborne volcanic ash which can cause engine failures. The cities impacted include Barrow, Bethel, Fairbanks, Kotzebue, Nome and Prudhoe Bay. So far, 45 flights have been cancelled.
