New Ash Cloud from Iceland Volcano Delays UK Airspace Flights

April 20, 2010 by · 2 Comments 

As more and more European airline companies are expecting to resume their flights in and out of UK on Tuesday, April 20th, a lot of them are disappointed since the latest news about Iceland Volcano is that it erupted again spreading new ash cloud over UK airspace causing more delays in flights.

Although UK’s National Weather Service said that the eruptions are smaller and weaker than the previous days, sometimes the ash cloud can be pushed over 10,000 feet which is the critical level for aircrafts, as weather conditions blow these volcanic ashes towards the United Kingdom.

According to NATS or the British National Air Traffic Control Services, “the volcano eruption in Iceland has strengthened and a new ash cloud is spreading south and east towards the UK” forcing them to modify their earlier announcement that the flight ban might be lifted as far as south as the main London airports.

Still for other airspaces, the agency is still firm with their earlier announcement that they will now open it to avoid further losses in the sinking European airline industry. For Scotland and parts of the north of England, they are scheduled to be lifted starting at 7am on Tuesday, April 20.

For airline passengers, it is advisable to contact your airline companies before travelling to the airport to be sure that they have resumed operations so as not to waste your time and effort.

Below is a picture of the new ash cloud heading towards UK particularly in the south and east portion.

    The Volcano eruption is the seething anger of the Viking Gods! They are incensed by the gross fraud perpetrated on his poor subjects by the Illuminati Goldman Sachs. The Gods won’t permit anything to fly in the European skies until president Obama agrees to punish Goldman Sachs appropriately, which is to close down their entire operations.

    The Gods are telling Briton, “You want cash? Take ash, instead”
