European skies are finally reopening, after the ash cloud production at the volcano slowed down in the past two days. The Icelandic Civil Protection reported that the volcano is now producing 80% less ash than during the weekend, with great relief also of all farmers and people living in the surroundings of Eyjafjallajökull.
This morning, most flights have been resumed to all destination at the Keflavík airport. Thousands of tourists are boarding flights, using the first chance in days to leave Iceland after the air space ban caused by the ash cloud. Flights to Heathrow will resume in the afternoon, with Icelandair listing two flights, at 16:10 and 17:00 today. Many flights might register long delays, so it is better to keep an eye on the timetable at the Keflavík airport website.
Long queues are forming at most of the airports reopening today. Air traffic agency Eurocontrol issued a press release informing that 75% of European flights should be flying by tomorrow.
Good luck everybody, and thanks for visiting us in the past days!
