EUROCONTROL: 1,000 flights cancelled on 17-May-2010

EUROCONTROL forecast 28,000 flights would operate in Europe on 17-May-2010, approximately 1,000 less than a normal day, due to airspace closures in the south-east of the UK and the Netherlands. Areas of ash concentration are mainly at low levels and the current cloud is expected to disperse. On 16-May-2010, disruptions in Ireland and north-west UK resulted in a reduction in the expected number of flights by about 400. There were a total of 25,088 flights within the EUROCONTROL CFMU area.
