Iceland Volcano Update

May 7, 2010 Edward

The latest information received from the Icelandic Meteorological Office shows that ash is still being emitted from the Icelandic volcano. This has resulted in an increase in ash over UK airspace. As a result, airports in Northern Ireland and Scotland have been affected. At present all Irish airports with the exception of Shannon, Cork, and Kerry, are restricted.

Forecasts indicate that this new ash cloud will gradually move away westwards from the UK during Wednesday night. This means that on Thursday ash concentrations over the whole of the UK should be below the new engine tolerance levels set by the aviation industry.

This has not resulted in any disruption to services to Australia at this stage.
