CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU WORRIED THE ICELANDIC ASH CLOUD WILL AFFECT YOUR HOLIDAY PLANS?

GEORGINA SMART | LONDON CAPITAL GROUP
“Yes I am as I’ve just booked my holiday. However, it’s not the airlines fault if the ash cloud returns, they can’t stop nature. But it’s going to cost the airline industry a lot of money in the long term as people now see there are other ways to travel the world.”

RICHARD DE BOLTZ | ICAP
“Things would have to get much worse before the ash cloud puts me off booking my holiday. I think the airline industry will be very worried if the volcano was to start erupting again. The big airlines would pull through, but the rest are in trouble.”

SHAUN ROGERS | HIGH FINANCE
“Yes I am worried and I’ll have to revise my plans. If this carries on airlines will be forced to cut the amount of routes they fly. Who knows, air travel might return to how it was thirty years ago with only the rich being able to afford to fly.”
