Ash cloud affects Northern Norway

Airspace to be closed later today.



Airport’s authority Avinor say the Norwegian CAA (Luftfartstilsynet) is to close parts of Northern Norway for air traffic from 14:00 today.

High concentrations of ash means flights won’t be operating in airspace above Andøya, Narvik, Bardufoss, Stokmarknes, Evenes, and probably Tromsø.

The CAA closures are bad news for travelers hoping to have gone away this bank holiday weekend.

“The present forecast predicts a no-fly zone in these six areas. We can’t tell for now what will happen after 20:00 this evening,” Bjørn Erlandsen, acting director of information at the CAA tells The Foreigner.

Avinor advises passengers to contact their airline, travel agent, or follow updates on the flight companies’ Facebook pages.
