Iceland warns airlines before volcanic eruption – FAZ – Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung



                          The Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull has caused four years ago for thousands of flight cancellations in Europe.


The Weather Authority of the North Atlantic island of Iceland has warned international airlines before an increased risk for a recent volcanic eruption under a glacier. A similar event in April, 2010, the airspace over the North Atlantic and most of Western Europe paralyzed for days. Here, more than 100,000 flights were canceled.


The alert level for the volcano Bardarbunga, located among the largest European glacier Vatnajökull, had been raised to “Orange”, it said on the website of Weather Authority based in Reykjavik last Monday. This was connected with an “elevated or increasing risk with increasing volcanic activity eruption potential.” The area had been measured since midnight more than 250 earthquakes. Visible signs of an imminent eruption, however its not noticeable.

Last one coming from the Icelandic volcano Grimsvotn ash cloud had led in May 2011 to flight cancellations in Scotland and northern England and in Germany. Volcanic ash can contain particles that can affect the safe operation of aircraft engines.
