In the British Isles air traffic has been affected by the ash cloud of the Icelandic volcano Grímsvötn. KLM airline suspended 16 flights scheduled for this morning from or bound for Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle. British Airways does not operate any flights between London and Scotland until this afternoon. EasyJet, Flybe, Aer Lingus, Loganair and Eastern Airways also canceled flights in the island.
The ashes of Grímsvötn are expected to affect Northwest UK and Ireland between today and tomorrow, but it is difficult to predict its evolution in the coming hours and know how it will affect other countries in the European Union due to unstable weather and the concentration of the cloud is different to the one that caused chaos in the European airspace last year, as reported by the European Commission.
Should I cancel my holiday or make alternative travel plans?
For up-to-date details on airspace restrictions please check the NATS website or contact your tour operator or airline for details on flight plans.
