Most Europe airports remain closed

Air traffic remained seriously disrupted across Europe Sunday as a cloud of ash released from Iceland’s volcanic eruption forced many countries to close their airspace.

Following is a list of airspace disruptions across the continent:

  • Britain: Britain extends flight ban in its airspace until 0600 GMT Monday.
  • France: Most French airports including international hubs Charles de Gaulle and Orly will stay closed until Tuesday morning. Several southern airports including Nice, Marseille, Bordeaux and Toulouse open.
  • Germany: Germany re-opens six airports temporarily, including Frankfurt, one of Europe’s main hubs.
  • Italy: Airspace across northern Italy closed until 0600 GMT on Monday.
  • Switzerland: Switzerland extended a ban on commercial flights at its airports until Monday at 1200 GMT. Overflights at altitudes over 36,000 feet (11,000 metres) allowed.
