Volcanic ash: cancellation of Air France medium-haul flights to northern Europe
Thursday 15, April 2010
A major area of international air space (Scandinavia and Great Britain) has been closed, forcing all airlines operating in this area to cancel numerous flights. Air France has cancelled some hundred flights to the U.K., the Netherlands, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, northern Germany and Russia on 15 April 2010.
