Airlines on alert as Iceland volcano erupts

24 August 2014

Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano burst forth with a small eruption Saturday under the ice of Europe’s largest glacier, scientists said, prompting the country to close airspace over the area.

Authorities raised the country’s aviation alert to red ” the highest level on a five-point scale ” indicating the threat of significant emission of ash into the atmosphere.

A 2010 eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokul volcano produced an ash cloud that caused a week of international aviation chaos, with more than 100,000 flights cancelled.
