Airspace across Europe reopens
April 22- Scores of stranded passengers finally managed to catch a flight home after the airspace across Europe was reopened after a week-long suspension. Airlines across the world were forced to suspend their flights after a volcano in Iceland eruption causing a massive ash cloud to form over most of the continent.
On Tuesday, the British authorities announced that the country’s airspace was open followed by almost all countries with restrictions announcing the same. Even Nordic countries such as Norway and Denmark allowed their airspace to open to jets owing to backlash from the aviation industry.
Meanwhile, the losses incurred from the suspensions are estimated to be around $1.7 billion, said the International Air Travel Authority (IATA) on Wednesday.
