But Conditions Could Worsen Over Next Two Days
As of 1000 CET Monday, Eurocontrol says it expects no
significant impact on flights Monday as a result of the eruption of
the Grimsvötn volcano in Iceland.
However, according to the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) in
London, depending on the continuing eruption of the volcano and the
meteorological conditions, there is a risk that some ash cloud may
reach parts of northern Europe in the next 48 hours.
The European Aviation Crisis Coordination Cell (EACCC),
comprising representatives from Eurocontrol, the European
Commission, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), States and
air transport stakeholders, has been activated in order to
coordinate a response that can mitigate any potential impact while
maintaining established safety levels.
