Ash Alert: Further U.K. Airport Closures Possible

May 15, 2010
Cruise travelers flying from or through the U.K. -- some of whom may already be impacted by planned British airways strikes -- now have something else to worry about: The ash cloud may be coming back.

More U.K. airport closures are possible this week due to the ongoing eruption of Eyjafjallajokull volcano, the BBC is reporting. Five-day prediction charts show that airspace in southeast England might be affected by the ash cloud, which could cause airport closures Sunday through Tuesday. More details should be forthcoming on Sunday, as weather patterns and volcanic activity could change.

The ash cloud has previously closed airports throughout the U.K. and Europe, with flight disruptions since mid-April.

Passengers are advised to contact their airline for information on delays.

We'll keep you posted.
