Scottish Flights Cancelled Due To Icelandic Ash Cloud ; Will More European Airspace Be Closed?

Ash from an Icelandic volcano, the Grimsvotn volcano under the Vatnajokull glacier forced the cancellation of dozens of flights to and from Scotland on Tuesday.

Last year, ash from another Icelandic volcano caused 100,000 flights to be canceled, stranding 10 million passengers and costing the industry an estimated $1.7 billion in lost revenue.

(Please click here for ‘Volcano Eruption Closed Airports In Europe’).

Norway’s airport operator said the ash cloud would cause some flight restrictions on its west coast on Tuesday and Denmark said a small area of its airspace would be closed.

Below are some of the flights affected as reported by REUTERS:

1.    Ryanair cancelled 36 flights between Scotland and cities across Europe, was told by the Irish Aviation Authority not to operate flights to Scottish airports until at least 1 p.m. (8 a.m. EDT).

 2.   British Airways said it would not operate any flights between London and Scotland on Tuesday that arrived in Scotland before 8 a.m. EDT or departed from Scotland before that time.

 3.   Flybe, EasyJet and Aer Lingus all said they were cancelling some of their flights to and from Scotland on Tuesday.

 4.    KLM, part of Air France-KLM canceled 16 flights to and from four British cities scheduled for Tuesday. Fights to and from Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle would be canceled on Tuesday morning, it said.

Europe’s air traffic control organization said that if the volcanic emissions continued at the same rate, the cloud could reach western French and northern Spanish airspace on Thursday.

Indonesian Volcano Erupts-Pictures

On Sunday, Mount Sinabung on the north of Sumatra island erupted; and on Monday it erupted again.

The volcano was inactive for four centuries or four hundred years; since 1600.

It shot ash 2 km or 1.5 miles into the air.

The eruption triggered the highest red volcano alert.

About 21,000 people left their houses because it is very dangerous to be near a volcano if it erupts.

Hot lava and burning rocks from the volcano can burn houses, trees and everything on its way down the volcano.

Volcanic ash covered trees, plants, houses and everything in the area.

People leaving the area were also covered by ash.

Some flight to Medan and Sibolga were delayed.

In April, 2010 the volcanic ash from Eyjafilljallajokull glacier in Iceland closed airspace and airports all over Europe and thousands and thousands of passengers were stranded all over the world.

I wonder if Malaysian airspace and airport will be closed if the volcanic ash problems get worse …

So far nobody knows when will the eruption stops …

I hope that there will not be a bigger eruption.

The farmers have to work hard to clean their farms.

The ash can be dangerous to the farmers and their animals.

In some places people have to wear masks and glasses.

This makes day as dark as night.

I read and wrote about stranded passenger at airports around the world.

What about the farmers around the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier?

A natural fire works show. The eruption of the volcano under the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier in Iceland causing airports to close in Europe.

I think that the photos of the eruption of the volcano under the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier is really beautiful.

But it caused problems to millions of people around the world!

Another amazing view of the volcanic eruption under the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier, Iceland.

All flights in and out of Barcelona's El Prat and 16 other Spanish airports have been grounded due to a plume of volcanic ash drifting across Europe emanating from a volcanic eruption near the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland.

        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.

        Please click here for the ‘List Of Airspace And Airport Closed(1942 GMT Saturday)’.

        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.
