Ash cloud causes 30 hour delay
Passengers were stranded at Glasgow Airport for more than 30 hours as the volcanic ash cloud continues to cause travel chaos, the Evening Times reports. Despite UK airports remaining open, the cloud has been drifting across Spain, Portugal and northern Africa, causing delays and cancellations for many flights to these destinations.
Budget airlines Ryanair and easyJet and Spanish airline Iberia were among those forced to ground planes and cancel flights yesterday. Charter flights have also been affected by the cloud, with one plane-load of passengers due to travel to Madeira with Thomas Cook waiting over 30 hours before their flight, which should have left Glasgow Airport on Monday, eventually begin cancelled the newspaper reports.
Forecasters have warned that the cloud will continue to disrupt flights around Spain, Portugal, the Canary Islands, north Africa and parts of France.
