Iceland volcanic ash: UK airspace open above 20,000ftFollowing new guidance from the International Civial Aviation Organisation, the Civil Aviation Authority has decided overnight to allow flights above 20,000ft in British airspace.
An update from NATS at 0900 BST this morning reflects the dynamic situation regarding the ash cloud as the volcano has issued more ash overnight.
Some Scottish airports will be open between 1300 and 1900 this afternoon: Aberdeen, Inverness and Edinburgh as well as Newcastle. However, restrictions will remain over the rest of British airspace below 20,000ft, which will prevent flights from taking off and landing across most of England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland and parts of Scotland.
NATS expect to make a further statement at 1500 BST.
