Bloomberg News is reporting that flights in Europe returned to normal yesterday after volcanic ash from Iceland caused cancellations and delays on Wednesday. The cloud of ash originated from the eruption of Iceland’s Grimsvotn volcano.
About 450 flights were cancelled in Germany with an additional 500 flights cancelled in Scotland and England. Some Nordic countries were also affected.
In 2010 a volcanic eruption in Iceland caused the cancellation of 100,000 flights in Europe over a six-day period.
