Is This The End Of Europe’s Travel Chaos?
Many tourists will be breathing a sigh of relief this week as Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull Volcano finally stops erupting. The end of the eruptions will signal the end of over a month’s worth of travel chaos for the European Travel Industry. According to experts, all activity in the crater has stopped with all signs pointing to no further eruptions in the near future. In the past month over 100,000 flights were grounded with has cost both the industry and disappointed tourists a substantial amount of money, more than 500,000 tourists found themselves stranded in airports around the world.
The news that any further flight disruptions may be ended will come as welcome relief as the peak tourist season is quickly approaching. European destinations are extremely desirable this year especially those in Greece and the Spanish Islands, many travel operators are already starting their campaigns to remove any worry about travelling and reassure passengers that no more disruptions will occur. Travellers from outside of Europe, especially those in America are already starting to book their breaks to destinations across the continent with many promotional campaigns focused solely on bringing US travellers to European beaches.
For now experts have decided that the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano is staying quiet, another investigation will be made after 21 days to bring further guarantee. During the month long eruptions there has been a possibility of the neighbouring Katla volcano erupting, this volcano is much larger than the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano and has the potential to cause extreme disruptions across Europe. Until now Katla has remained dormant however experts are keeping a close eye on any activity.
