Alaska Airlines resumes flights to, from Alaska  Mar 24, 2009

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Alaska Airlines says it's resuming flights to and from Alaska after ash clouds cleared from the most recent eruption of Mount Redoubt.

Thirty-five flights were canceled through early Tuesday morning because of six eruptions from the volcano about 100 miles southwest of Anchorage.

The airline's jets at the Anchorage airport were wrapped in a protective plastic sealant and unsealed Tuesday morning. The airline says the sealant protects aircraft from the abrasive ash particles, which post a significant danger to engines.

Further eruptions could alter scheduled flights.
