New Ash Cloud Delays UK Airspace Flights – Airspace Ban to Stay?


With more airlines expecting to resume air flights in and out of UK, a new ash cloud from island has disappointed passengers yet again. UK’s national weather service has said the eruptions are technically small but the ash clouds are rising to more than 10000 feet – which in itself is very critical for flights.


According to UK’s Air Traffic Control, a new ash cloud has risen from the eruption and is moving south and east towards UK airspace. This is now forcing the authorities to modify their announcement of lifting the ban of air travel.

For other airspaces, they are standing firm on their decision of resuming their air flights, as they cannot stand further more losses for their already sinking airline industry. And with news to passengers, the it is advisable for them contact before hand to their respective airline industry to confirm whether operations have started or not.
