Flights return as ash cloud clears

Airports reopened and flights resumed across Europe yesterday as the ash cloud from Icelandic volcano Grimsvotn cleared. Berlin and Hamburg airports both reopened during the day, but Hamburg warned that “it is possible that operations will be limited” until a backlog of disrupted flights clears. Germany had seen 450 flights cancelled yesterday due to the ash. Eurocontrol said that it does not expect any disruption from the cloud today.
