EyjafjallajÃ¶kull, that famous volcano in Iceland is at it again, this time closing Ireland airports tomorrow due to yet more floating ash. As EyjafjallajÃ¶kull blows, Irish airspace is vulnerable so the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) have imposed a restruction on all flights starting tomorrow May 4th, 2010, due to ash ingestion in aircraft engine risks. This warning is on the IAA website.
With that warning comes the closures of both Dublin and Shannon airports, which will be shut for at least six hours. The no fly zone extends to Northern Ireland as well.
According to the Icelandic Meteorological Office, EyjafjallajÃ¶kull has consistently been erupting, but an increase in intensity has caused this new problem over Ireland. More as information becomes available on the close of Ireland airports as the Iceland volcano blows, sending toxic ash into the air once again.
Meanwhile, do you have any friends or relatives who will be affected by EyjafjallajÃ¶kull this time around? Does the notorious Iceland volcano mean you will thwart your travel plans to Ireland or the rest of Europe as airports close and then open up again? What do you think of the EyjafjallajÃ¶kull volcano situation in general?
