Easyjet Flight Cancellations 16 April 2010
Friday 16, April 2010
Due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland, UK Air Traffic Control (NATS) has now closed UK airspace until at least 1pm on Friday 16th. This means that easyJet, along with all other airlines, is currently unable to operate flights in and out of the UK.
The disruption is expected to continue, and we are unable to say when operations will resume as normal given the uncertainty of this situation. A number of northern and western European countries are also affected.
Volcanic ash can cause a significant safety risk. The suspension of operations could last for an extended period. Please keep checking the website for updates or information on any booked flights.
Please check your flight before you travel
If you were due to fly at any time on April 15th or at any time up until 1pm on April 16th from any UK airport, unfortunately your flight has now been cancelled.

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.
