U.K. Flights ban extended by NATS: Latest News, April 17
The airports chaos in the U.K. sets to deepen even further with the latest statement from NATS, the U.K. air traffic control centre. Their statement less than one hour ago says that the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland continues to vary in shape and movement leading to further flight bans.
After receiving information from the Met Office, NATS now says that all restrictions at present in place across U.K. controlled airspace, will now stay in place until at least 01:00 a.m. tomorrow, Sunday April 18.
There is a possibility that some domestic flights within Scotland and Northern Ireland may be able to operate if the ash cloud shifts significantly enough to allow it. However they add it is highly unlikely there will be many flights today and issue the usual information that people should contact their airlines if they were due to fly today, before leaving home.
