List Of Airspace Closed In Europe

The eruption of the volcano near the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier in Iceland send volcanic ash to Europe airspace.

Please click here for the updated list as of 1942 GMT Saturday.

This is a disaster.

Lots of countries in Europe close their airspace because it is too dangerous.

If the volcanic ash get into the plane’s engines, the engines can shut down by themselves.

I got this list from CNN.
