The Ash Cloud Strikes Back

Further Cancellations as Volcanic Ash has Swansong

Holidaymakers planning a May retreat have every reason to start getting anxious as the ash cloud that ruined thousands of holidays in April looks set to terrorise one more time. What appears to be the final remains of the volcanic ash coming from Iceland has effect and forced the cancellation of various flights throughout Ireland and parts of Scotland. These new restrictions will hopefully be lifted by 1pm today though it is no guarantee.

Irish airline Ryanair has been forced into cancelling all of its flight to and from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland as a result of the safety risks. The flights cancelled come within the time frame of 6am and 2pm today. EasyJet is another airline suffering as a result of the reoccurring ash cloud cancelling 20 or so of its flights from Belfast airports. Another Irish airline Aer Lingus has suspended flights until at least 1pm and Aer Arann suffered similar setbacks when it came to domestic flights also.

As it stands the final remains of the ash cloud seem to be only causing problems to the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland while the rest of Europe hasn’t been affected this time. Many people will be sat at home now crossing their fingers that we don’t endure the same amount of cancellations as last month.

Like all people we hope that this sequel to the first ash cloud is the last chapter and that a trilogy certainly isn’t on the cards to cause more havoc and chaos across Europe.
