Since British airspace has bee closed since Thurdsay, they are FINALLY going to resume flights. The many people that have been stranded or had their travels disrupted can finally move on!

British airspace will reopen flights from 0600 GMT on Tuesday after the levels of volcanic ash from Iceland declined, the UK air traffic controllers said on Monday.

National Air Traffic Services (NATS), which is the UK airspace control said in a statement, the volcanic eruption in southern Iceland has reduced and is not emitting ash to altitudes which would affect Britain.

Scotland’s and northern England’s Airspace will open first but, there are restrictions in the rest of England and Wales which may be lifted later on Tuesday.

NATS said, “assuming there are no further significant ash emissions we are looking at a continuously improving situation. It is now for the airports and airlines to decide how best to utilize the opportunity.”
