Icelandair flight information regarding Grimsvotn Iceland volcano
Due to the current Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland, Icelandair has been experiencing some delays; however, most flights, with the exception of London Heathrow and Manchester, have been leaving Iceland and passengers are still being kept informed. While the airline acknowledges that delays are possible, it is heeding the advice of scientists saying that the current eruption will not cause large-scale travel disruptions.
The message from Icelandair at this time is that bookings will be honoured and that passengers are advised not to cancel their travel plans. Iceland is still safe place to visit, and the airline also notes that the eruption could stop with little warning.
The ash particles from the Grimsvotn eruption are heavier compared to those of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption in April 2010. This means the ash is unlikely to spread as far, and due to wind direction, the vast majority of ash is being driven away from European airspace. The last Grimsvotn eruption in 2004 lasted just one week and the intensity of the current volcanic activity has already decreased significantly. Some areas of southeast Iceland are covered in ash and temporarily off-limits; however, life continues as normal throughout the rest of the country.
Iceland and Icelandairís travel and communications infrastructure are designed to deal with volcanic eruptions. Despite the current volcanic eruption, Icelandair is consistently ranked as one of Europeís most punctual airlines.
