It looks as though the volcanic ash cloud affecting Southern and Western Norway is moving away for now.

According to Avinor’s latest prognosis, the airspace from Bergen Flesland airport up to Berlevåg in Finnmark is now open, with a good chance of Kirkenes, Vadsø, Vardø og Båtsfjord opening during the course of this evening.

It also means Southern Norway could clear completely within the next 6 to 12 hours. Stavanger (Sola), Haugesund (Karmøy), Kristiansand (Kjevik), Oslo Gardermoen (OSL), Torp, and Rygge may be during the course of the evening.

Passengers are non advised to check with their airline, nonetheless, and priority for air ambulance helicopters is still in effect.
