Press Advisory - Bardarbunga Update

Press Advisory – Bardarbunga Update

24 August 2014

Icelandic authorities have downgraded the current alert from Red to Orange and the temporary danger area has been cancelled. NATS will continue to monitor the situation and is working in close collaboration with the Met Office, DfT and our safety regulator, the CAA, although we expect operations to continue as normal for the rest of today.

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?”.
