Volcanic ash cloud and European travel – live blog
We have restarted the live blogging of disruption to European flights as a result of ash from the Icelandic volcano.
This was Tnooz’s live blogging of the extraordinary impact on the travel industry following the spread of the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud.
We had a live feed of updates from airlines and airports affected, as well as news from government authorities, weather services and coverage on the web.
The live blog ran from Thursday 15 to Tuesday 20 April 2010.
Additional content is available below the live blogging module.
