Ash Cloud Updates from the Telegraph UK

Friday, May 21st, 2010

The Telegraph (UK) has an excellent regularly updated feature here with the latest delays from the Iceland Volcanic ash cloud that has disrupted travel to and from Europe – especially the UK – on and off for over a month.

As of May 21 almost all restrictions appear to be lifted and flights are proceeding mostly as planned, though the unpredictability of the eruptions means that travel to and from Europe this summer could have some problems.

The silver lining, reports CNN, is that some European destinations such as Ireland are creating special promotions in the hopes of recapturing some of the lost business.  Furthermore the decline of the Euro vs US Dollar due to the Greece financial crisismakes this summer a particularly inexpensive time to visit Europe for Americans using their stronger  currency.
