Press Advisory – Bardarbunga Update
We are continuing to monitor this dynamic situation, but as there has still not been any volcanic activity above the surface and the size of the temporary danger area in Iceland has been reduced, we are expecting normal operations today. Additional oceanic flight paths have been put in place as a contingency measure and we have updated our airline and airport customers with the latest information and will continue to do so.
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?”.
