Dublin Airport open for flights

Dublin Airport has joined Cork and Shannon in being declared safe for some flights today.

The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) announced that as a result of the ash cloud continuing to move away from the south east, it is lifting restrictions within Irish airspace except for a block off the south coast of Ireland.

This effectively means that Dublin Shannon and Cork Airports will be open for flights.

"While our State airports have had the restriction lifted, the situation is still very serious throughout Europe," said the IAA.

"The majority of airspace and airports in the UK, France and Germany continue to have restrictions in place. The weather maps show the volcanic ash cloud hanging over England and Wales and most of mainland Europe.

"So there will continue to be restrictions in those countries for at least the next 24 hours. This will mean that there will continue to be serious disruption for east bound and south bound traffic out of Irish airports.

"We are concerned that the volcano continues to be very active and we cannot rule out further restrictions if the weather patterns change and the ash cloud returns to Ireland."

Passengers should keep in touch with their airlines on a regular basis for updates.

The IAA will provide an update after 2pm today.

and this is what started it all ... Eyjafjallajökull (1666m). Not much happening here in March 2006. Photo taken from the Sólheimajökull, a glacier which strides the edge of the Katla, a neighbouring deep sub-glacial volcano.

Air passengers arrive at Glasgow

Relieved passengers began arriving in the UK from Iceland on Friday as jets were given permission to land at Glasgow Airport.

Two Icelandair flights touched down just after 5pm and a third was landing later.

The three flights will mean around 600 UK passengers whose return flights from Iceland were cancelled due to the volcanic ash plume can get back home, according to the airline.

Can't planes fly really low to avoid the ash? Granted it'll eat up a lot of fuel, but it's surely better than not flying at all. Anyone knows why this is not an option? Secondly, I was reading that props don't suffer this bad from volcanic ash and can fly in this weather. So do any airlines have plans of getting a few props (from other airlines) to at least have a few flights?

Flying at low altitude at high speed puts the fuselage under tremendous pressure.

Apparently, better news coming from Scandinavia.

Sweden, Norway gradually reopen airspace

Airspace over Sweden and Norway was gradually reopening Friday, but Denmark's and Finland's remained closed because of the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland, officials said.

On Thursday, Sweden and several other northern European countries closed their airspace.

On Friday, the civil aviation authority in Stockholm said Swedish airspace "is now reopening step by step." It said flights will resume in northern Sweden, with restrictions being lifted throughout the country gradually.

Norwegian airport operator Avinor reopened airspace over the northern half of Norway's west coast at 0700 GMT.
However, Stockholm's Arlanda Airport and Oslo's Gardermoen Airport remained closed Friday morning.

In Denmark, aviation officials said the airspace will stay closed at least through 0600 GMT Saturday.

Finland, which closed its airspace early Friday, said it would extend the measure to Sunday afternoon instead of Saturday, as earlier planned. Finnish airports operator Finavia Corp. said it expects the volcanic ash plume to remain over the country for several days.

dont hold your breath, the last time Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 1821 it lasted 2 years!

Maybe buy some shares in trans-atlantic passenger ship liners i think...

true, as mentioned in other threads, ash returned and closed all airports in Norway again (and it was only a few north of Trondheim that was open for a few hours).

This is latest status on Iceland, eruption ongoing as strong and stronger as before. More ash, and its heading for N. Europe.

I don't get that bit. Rathlin and Antrim are both in Northern Ireland, not Scotland.

Apparently Both Belfast airports and Dublin, Cork and Shannon will all be opening very soon. I don't see the point though, as judging by the map, Ireland hasn't even overcome the worst of the plume yet. I never thought I'd see the day that so many important European airports were closed. I think the only big ones currently open are Madrid, Barcelona and Athens. Not sure though.

Due to large visitor numbers in connection with the serious disruption of air traffic (caused by a
volcanic eruption on Iceland) we are presenting this website in a different manner than usual.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Do you know why there are a few flights allowed, but the rest canceled*? Are these props?

*unlike inclement weather, ash doesn't have a 'window' in which one might operate.

The only weird location in that list is Berlin, that must be a fun detour via the south of France.

UK's airspace is split between two ACCs (Area Control Centers): Scottish ACC in Prestwick and London ACC in Swanwick. Each of these ACCs' airspace is further split into sectors. Rathlin and Antrim are just two sectors in Scottish ACC.

Here's an overview of Scottish airspace...
