Flight disruptions due to ash cloud - KLM and Air France Update 8 May


The ash clouds resulting from the ongoing volcanic eruption in Iceland continue to affect flight schedules in Western Europe.




At this moment, the air space over West Ireland (Knock-Ireland West airport and Shannon airport) has been closed. However, all KLM flights are on schedule. This includes KLM flights which are operated by our partner Aer Lingus.


The flight time of our flights to or from North Atlantic destinations may be a bit longer than usual, because the routes are adjusted.


Check the arrival and departure times of your flight here.


Air France


Routes for Air France flights going to or coming from North America, Central America and the Caribbean are modified to avoid volcanic cloud.

Flight time can be a little bit longer than usual.


For updated information on Air France flights, please refer to Flight and destination information.
