Volcano in Iceland: flights are just allowed over some European countries

Europe begins to open its airspace

In brief: The flights are allowed over Switzerland and the Netherlands.

The good news: some European countries have opened their airspaces for passing over. But the airports are still closed. To fly over some parts of Europe is possible because the cloud of ash comes down and releases the air in higher layers of the atmosphere.

Thus the flights are allowed over Switzerland and the Netherlands. Meanwhile Ukraine, Moldova, Italy and some Balkan countries have closed all airports. Now there is no direct danger for their territory but these are preventive measures in order to keep airlines in security.

Meantime scientists have possibility to fly over the volcanic crater in order to predict the situation. Now there is a belief that the volcano stops erupting in 2-3 days while the cloud of its ash is going to cover European sky for the whole next week.
