Volcano erupting in Iceland
As of 16:00 CET today, EUROCONTROL has the following update to make with regard to the situation of air traffic in Europe.
There has been no significant impact on flights today as a result of the eruption of the Grimsvötn volcano in Iceland.
However, according to the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) in London, there is a strong possibility that parts of the ash cloud may impact parts of Scotland and Ireland in the coming 24 hours. Due to unstable meteorological conditions, it is not possible to identify with certainty the movements of the ash cloud beyond that time frame.
The next traffic update will be issued around 10:00 CET tomorrow, 24 May.
