NEWSFLASH - In the UK, the CAA (equivalent
of US FAA) is opening up the UK's airspace at all airports from 10pm UK
(2pm Pacific/5pm Eastern time), for
all flights, as a result of redefining the allowable amount of ash
exposure to planes.
It will take a while for flight schedules to
return to normal, but at least the log jam is clearing.
This does not guarantee that all flights
will always operate in the future, regardless of ash levels, but it
seems to indicate that airspace closures will not be on such a hair
One assumes that the EU will follow soon
suit and relax its airspace closures too.
