Check volcano news before booking your next trip

European airspace could be affected by a new wave of volcanic ash carried over from Iceland, it’s been predicted. Previously Eyjafjallajökull Volcano was the culprit now it’s Grimsvotn which, on 21 May, began pushing out smoke and lava.

If the volcano gains strength events of April 2010 could be repeated, with the worst case scenario being another ban placed on commercial airline operations. Since the eruption a 120 mile-wide no-fly zone has been imposed. Keflavik International Airport, Iceland’s largest, is not in operation for the time being and other Icelandic airports could follow the same lead.
