Air Berlin: Further Flight cancellations because of air space closure
Saturday 17, April 2010
As a result of the volcanic eruption in Iceland and the volcanic ash that this has released into the atmosphere, the civil aviation safety authorities have shut off major sections of European airspace and the airports in Germany.
It is not foreseeable when these restrictions will be lifted. Upon the recommendation of the DFS (Deutsche Flugsicherung) Air Berlin is cancelling all flights – except for some domestic Spanish flights – until 2 a.m. on 18th April 2010 inclusive.
Passengers affected by these cancellations are requested not to travel to the airport. Any flights until Monday, 19th April 2010 inclusive can be rebooked or cancelled free of charge (for flights until 31st May 2010). Further information is available online or by calling 00800 5 737 8000 toll-free.
Air Berlin is in constant contact with the relevant authorities and airports and will provide information as quickly as possible about further developments and consequences for Air Berlin’s flight operations.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
