Spanish airports re-open this morning

Mon 10th May 2010

Spanish airspace is returning to normal today, after the clouds of volcanic ash from Iceland closed twenty Spanish airports over the weekend, resulting in Hundreds of cancelled flights and many others with lengthy delays.

The Minister for Development said that the decision to close the airports was taken for safety reasons, and he warned that more problems could not be ruled out next week if the cloud threatens Spanish airspace once again.

RENFE Spanish railways provided increased capacity in their services to meet demand, while Vueling decided to transport some of their passengers from Barcelona to Sevilla, Valencia, Rome, Milan, and even Venice.

All Spanish airports are operating normally this morning, with Asturias, Santander, Bilbao, Salamanca, Valladolid, León, and Burgos re-opening at 2am, but the latest predictions are for the ash cloud to move over the country again later today, and could affect Extremadura, Madrid and the North East of the country.

AENA, the Spanish Airports Authority, has said that the return of the cloud does not necessarily mean airports will have to be closed again.
