Volcano: The Sequel

The Irish Aviation Authority has announced the closure of its airspace from 7:00AM to 1:00PM Local Time tomorrow, Tuesday, May 4th, 2010. Another volcanic ash cloud is heading south from Iceland will affect Ireland and parts of Scotland. There is nothing to indicate that the eruption is ending, and ash clouds like this might be a problem for a long time to come.

EU vs. the Volcano

Large portions of European airspace are closed today due to volcano ash due to the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Many airports in Europe have been closed till tomorrow, and thus there is much chaos as stranded passengers struggle to find their way home.

If you are flying to/from/within Europe today, please check with your carrier.

More on this later.
