Volcanic ash and air traffic update - 13 May
Thursday 13, May 2010
Today EuroControl expects normal amounts of traffic across Europe with fully normal operations.
The areas of high ash concentration at high altitude have now dispersed.
Areas of high ash concentration at lower altitudes are well clear of routes used by European flights. The early morning trans-Atlantic flights operated normally and the same is expected for westbound flights later today.
According to the forecasts, the areas of higher ash concentration are not expected to cause any disruption to air traffic during the next 24 hours.
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.
