Will European Airspace Be Opened On Monday?

18 04 2010

The volcano under the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier in Iceland is still erupting.

People cannot fly in some Europe airspace for the 4th day on Sunday.

In fact it affected more countries in Europe by Saturday.

More people cannot go back to their homes by plane.

Can people fly on Monday?

I think maybe people can fly in some places in Europe.

But some airspace will still be closed.

May be they should travel by ships to cross the ocean.

The train tickets were sold out because more people want to travel home on the trains.

Here is what I read from Reuters:

France said Paris airports would be closed until at least Monday morning. Italy maintained a shutdown of its northern airports. The Dutch extended a shutdown to Sunday morning and Switzerland closed airports until 1200 GMT (8 a.m. EDT) on Sunday.

British Airways, hit by strikes last month that cost it around $70 million, canceled all Sunday’s flights.

Ireland’s Ryanair, Europe’s biggest low-cost carrier, has canceled all flights to and from northern European countries until 1200 GMT on Monday.

Europe’s biggest tour operator, TUI Travel, said it was cancelling all trips until at least 0800 GMT (4 a.m. EDT) on Sunday.

Disruption spread to Asia, where dozens of Europe-bound flights were canceled and hotels from Beijing to Singapore strained to accommodate stranded passengers. In Singapore, 45 flights were canceled on Saturday, Changi Airport said.

More than four in five flights by U.S. airlines to and from Europe were canceled on Saturday. Shipping company FedEx Corp said more than 100 FedEx Express flights headed to Europe were rerouted, diverted or canceled within the past 72 hours.
