Volcanic ash: cancellation of Air France medium-haul flights to northern Europe


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.



Air France remains in permanent contact with the specialized weather services in order to track the movement of the cloud of ash.

As soon as the situation allows, Air France will resume service to these destinations.


Passengers whose flight has been cancelled will be able to postpone their trip or have their tickets reimbursed. Air France will do all it can to ensure all its passengers reach their destination.


Passenger information:


Passengers are invited to check information updates in real time on:

  • by phoning 3654
  • by sending a text message indicating the flight number to 6 3654 (example: AF2062)
