Easyjet Flight Cancellations due to Volcano Eruption on Thursday 15 April 2010


A volcano eruption in Iceland is causing clouds of volcanic ash into the atmosphere. UK Air Traffic Control (NATS) has now closed UK airspace for safety reasons. This means that easyJet, along with all other airlines, is unable to operate flights into or out of the UK.



Volcanic ash can cause a significant safety risk. The suspension of operations could last for an extended period. Please keep checking Easyjet website for updates or information on any booked flights. Safety is number one priority and any flights that pass through affected airspace have been cancelled. All airlines are affected by this unavoidable issue.



Please check your flight before you travel

If you are flying today, all Easyjet flights to and from Aberdeen, Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham have now been cancelled. Flights from all other UK airports are also cancelled until at least 6pm. Please can you check your flight's current status on the Flight Departures Checker page at before you travel to the airport.


If your flight is cancelled

Easyjet offers you either:

  • A full refund of the cost of your flight and any directly related unflown sector within the same booking (if applicable), back to the original card your flight was paid with, OR
  • A free transfer to another flight on the same route within 30 days of the original flight date. If your flight is part of a return trip, you will also be able to change any directly related sector(s) within the same booking free of charge to keep your initial intended length of stay.

This is in accordance with our obligations under EC Regulation 261/2004
Please remember you may also need to separately cancel other elements such as travel insurance, accommodation or car rental.


Once again we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this unavoidable safety issue may cause.
