A Reuters correspondent flying out of the Argentine capital's Ezeiza International Airport to Brazil said his 06:55 a.m. (4:55 a.m. EST) flight had been delayed indefinitely.

The online departure board for the domestic airport Aeroparque Jorge Newbery showed all LAN Argentina flights canceled up until 10:35 a.m. EST.
