Airports reopen after ash problems
UK airports have reopened overnight and this morning after the latest volcanic ash cloud problems. The disruption started on Monday, and confused travellers as authorities repeatedly closed, then reopened, airports as conditions changed.
Flights were grounded yesterday in parts of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and overnight in Northern Ireland, western Scotland and the far south-west of England. However, the ash cloud has moved west and has now cleared UK airspace.
Airports in Northern Ireland, plus Islay, Campbeltown, Isle of Man, Lands End and the Isles of Scilly were taken out of the no-fly zone at 07:00 today. Glasgow Airport had reopened at 01:00 and planes took to the skies again from Edinburgh yesterday evening.
A spokesman for airport operator BAA said it was working closely with airlines to restore flight schedules to normal. He said: ‘We will provide updated information on the services that will be operating as soon as it becomes available.'
