All flights in and out of British airspace have been cancelled for an indefinite period because of a cloud of ash from a volcano which erupted on Thursday in Iceland. Reports keep changing on when normal services will be resumed but we´re due to fly to Istanbul on Tuesday morning.

Will we make it? Fingers crossed and watch this space!

Satellite imagery Sunday morning shows an active volcanic plume spreading ash southwards and southeastwards from southern Iceland. Remnants of earlier plume activity over Europe much less evident now on derived dust imagery. Recent information from the Icelandic Met Office suggests the volcano is currently erupting ash to a height of approximately 4km. Issued at 0850 on Sun 18 Apr 2010.

 

see icelandic volcano blog for more.

Ah well-I hope we get there eventually. At least we´re in the comfort of our own home and not stranded abroad trying to get back!

 Thank you ptaszek-sorry your plans were disrupted. We just heard that our flight tomorrow is cancelled and the next available one is not until next Monday. We had already packed our bags etc. so now we have to carry on as normal ´til next week. We miss out on 2 nights in Antalya and will have to go straight to Kemer where we were booked in for 6 nights and will now only get 2 before we move on again.

News is that airspace will be opening tomorrow afternoon.

Soooooooo annoying!

I was told we can go possibly on wednesday,I am still unpacked..we lost our flight reservation with onur,and they are not willing to give money back..not to mention pre-paid istanbul accommodation..ahh..crazy

now I am trying to make may available although so much to pay,so many changes and the most important not being present at the festival...damn..but

birdy does not belong to ppl who are let down by things she does not have influence on-good mood maintained..

I love Kemer...the marina is just great)))again-good luck!
