Europe Shuts Down Major Airports over Volcanic Ash Again

Major airports across Europe have been forced to shut down once again, as ash clouds from Iceland's erupting volcano drift south over European airspace.

Rising volcanic activity prompted Britain's Civil Aviation Authority on Monday to ground flights from Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports until 7:00 am BST. A no-fly zone has also been imposed in parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland, Press TV reports.

Airports are advising passengers to check the status of their flight with their airline before travelling to the airport. The Department of Transport has warned there may be restrictions across different parts of the UK until Tuesday when a change in wind direction is expected to blow the ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano away from Britain.

British Airways' problems are expected to continue however, with staff planning strike action from Tuesday, Telegraph informs.
