Volcano eruption shuts Iceland airspace

A volcanic eruption in Iceland forced the closure of airspace over and around the country’s main airport, a spokeswoman for Keflavik International Airport said Sunday, quoted by CNN. There is currently “no impact on European or transatlantic flights,” and none was expected on Sunday, Europe’s umbrella air traffic control association Eurocontrol said. Last year, another Icelandic eruption, of the volcano Eyjafjallajokull, attracted worldwide attention after its ash cloud disrupted air travel across Europe. The Grimsvotn volcano under the Vatnajokull glacier erupted Saturday, according to the Icelandic Meteorological Office. The last eruption of the volcano was in 2004.
