Lastest update on Iceland Volcano and Flights

The latest information released by NATS (National Air Traffic Services) has confirmed some ATC restrictions have been lifted on airspace in Scotland, Shetland, Orkneys and Northern Ireland.

However restrictions will remain in place across English and Welsh airspace until 0700(GMT)Saturday 17th April when the situation will be reviewed.

It is feared that even when these restrictions are removed, it will still take some time for airlines to get their schedules back on track, with many currently facing logistical nightmares with planes that are stranded in the wrong locations. For more information please visit the BBC News Website

NATS the UK air traffic control centre has put up a very helpful landing page on their website which will be updated regularly with bulletins about the flight situation and the UK Met office are also displaying live maps of the volcanic movement.

We will continue to keep you up to date with any new developments as they happen here.

If you or someone you know is stranded and in need of accommodation, please visit our homepage as we have several properties currently available
