After days of cancellations, about half of Europe’s 27,500 flights are expected to be airborne today. The delays come after the Eyjafjallajökull volcano is Iceland erupted on March 29th this year, spewing an ash cloud into the atmosphere that has taken almost a month to clear. This comes as a huge relief to passengers stranded across European airports and especially international travelers who have no other means of getting home.
No one has died as a result of the explosions and goods are still moving across the continent, with air travel being the worst affected area. Flights to and from the U.S have also seen various cancellations.
There are fears, however, that another ash cloud is headed towards the U.K, but of a significantly diminished volume. The overall debris is expected to clear over the next few days.
