Press Advisory – Bardarbunga Update
NATS is continuing to monitor the situation and is working in close collaboration with the Met Office, DfT and our safety regulator, the CAA.
As there has not been any volcanic activity above the surface, UK airspace remains unaffected. We have updated our airline and airport customers with the latest information from Iceland and will continue to do so should this dynamic situation develop further.
Please be advised that in cases of volcanic ash, the airline operator is responsible for ensuring it has the correct approval to fly through areas of ash contamination; UK airspace will remain open.
For further information on how operations are maintained in UK airspace in cases of volcanic ash, please see our blog post – “What happens if Bardarbunga erupts?”.
