Iceland hopes to reopen airport after volcano erupts

Iceland hopes its main international airport will reopen to air traffic Monday, following a volcanic eruption in the country over the weekend, a spokeswoman told CNN. There were no international flights in or out of the country on Sunday after Europe’s most active volcano, Grimsvotn, began to erupt on Saturday. Icelandic officials will reassess the situation Monday and hope to be able to reopen airspace, Keflavik International Airport spokeswoman Hjordis Gudmunsdottir said. Eurocontrol, the European air safety organisation, said no impact was expected on European airspace outside Iceland or on transatlantic flights for at least 24 hours.
