KLM cancelled flights due to ash cloud - 9 May


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.
