DialAFlight Advises UK Travellers Following Second Volcanic Ash Cloud in Iceland

Flights to and from Scotland currently being cancelled or delayed; British Airways, easyjet and KLM among the airlines cancelling flights.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Online travel company DialAFlight is warning UK travellers to check ahead before flying this week, amid fears that a volcanic ash cloud caused by an eruption of the Grimsvötn volcano in Iceland may cause prolonged delays.

Customers who have purchased holidays or flights from DialAFlight for international destinations this week should get in touch with their DialAFlight representative via the direct number from their booking. Our customer service team will handle any queries or changes directly with the airline.

With the blanket-closure of much of UK air-space last year due to another volcanic ash cloud, government officials and air traffic controllers are expecting less severe disruption. Airports remained open on Tuesday 24th May, with some airlines taking the decision to cancel flights to and from Scotland, which is currently the only area visibly affected.

The only fear for operators and officials is that the unpredictability of this week's weather, which has seen increased wind speeds over the last five days, may cause the ash cloud to spread further over the British Isles and towards Southern England and the Channel.

With a change in the UK policy over take-off and landing in severe weather, the decision to fly now lies with the airlines, which must make a 'safety case' to ensure security when flying in disruptive weather. BMI Baby continues to fly out of Glasgow and Edinburgh, whilst British Airways chose to cancel its flights, to avoid later delays.
