KLM cancelled flights due to ash cloud - 9 May
Sunday 9, May 2010
The ash clouds resulting from the ongoing volcanic eruption in Iceland continue to affect flight schedules in Europe. Part of the cloud is currently over Southern Europe.
KLM has cancelled flights to/from Nice (KL1260 on Sunday May 9th), Marseille (KL1400 on Sunday May 9th), Bordeaux (KL1319 on Saturday May 8th, KL1314 on Sunday May 9th) and Toulouse (KL1300 on Sunday May 9th).
Other flights to above mentioned airports as well as flights to other (Southern) European airports may become affected as well. Please KLM webpage regularly for an update of the situation.
The main part of the cloud continues to be positioned over the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, our flights to/from North Atlantic and Carribean destinations currently experience delays of up to serveral hours, due to the fact that the aircraft have to be rerouted.
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.
