Airports reopen after another day of frustration
"The Civil Aviation Authority promised flight cancellations due to volcanic ash will be "significantly" reduced, as it unveiled new regulations last night.
"The UK's air safety watchdog doubled the safe limit for flying through ash plumes following intense discussions with aircraft and engine manufacturers, after another day of airspace closures. British skies were fully reopened last night after further eruptions from the Icelandic volcano closed Heathrow and Gatwick in the morning, and Belfast City, Derry, Shetland and Orkney for much of the day.
"The CAA said the new regime starting today will allow airlines to fly in contaminated air corridors for a set period of time once they have reached agreement with aircraft engine manufacturers."
