Because of Iceland vulcano

 



Because of Iceland vulcano



An enormous ash cloud from a remote Icelandic volcano caused the biggest flight disruption since Thursday as it drifted over northern Europe and stranded travelers on six continents. Officials said it could take days for the skies to become safe again in one of aviation's most congested areas.
°
The cloud, floating miles above Earth and capable of knocking out jet engines, wrecked travel plans for tens of thousands of people, from tourists and business travelers to politicians and royals. They couldn't see the source of their frustration - except indirectly, when the ash created vibrant red and lavender sunsets.
° 
Non-emergency flights in Britain were canceled, and most will stay grounded until at least midday Friday. Authorities in Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Belgium also closed their air space. France shut down 24 airports, including the main hub of Charles de Gaulle in Paris, and several flights out of the U.S. had to double back.
°
So I don't know if I will have a airplane for my business trip to Brussels in next days...
I HAVE TO GUESS

Belgian airspace remains closed until 20:00LT

As a result of the volcanic activity in Iceland and the ash cloud over Europe, Belgian airspace remains closed until Saterday 20:00LT. This means that all air traffic to and from Brussels Airport remains suspended.

  1. Yessss, Viera, guessing is all you can do but, please don't forget to keep some optimism, though at this moment it seems there is not enough fundamentals to keep it. I have watched the latest news which made me more worried about that huge cloud and its effects on the Portuguese air space.

  14. Oh Viera, I'll keep my fingers crossed for your trip.
    May the wind help you to blow the volcanic ash very quickly, that your flight will be save.

  16. It's amazing how suddenly these flight disruptions can start. It's also amazing how quickly the airline industry recovers.
