Volcanic Ash Disruption Update

Monday 23rd May, 2011 at 1500

Flybe is closely monitoring the progress of the volcanic ash cloud following the eruption of the Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland. No decision has been taken on Flybe’s schedule for Tuesday 24th and, at this time, passengers should go to the airport as normal for their scheduled flight.

Should this situation change and any delays or cancellations be necessary, we will update this page by 20.30 this evening, Monday 23rd, having carefully examined the latest metrological advice.  

Following disruption due to volcanic ash in 2010 and because of its work with aircraft and engine manufacturers, Flybe is one of the few commercial airlines that has permission from Regulatory Authorities to fly in more dense concentrations of ash. We are therefore able to treat this disruption in a manner similar to any weather disruption and our commitment is to keep Britain and Europe on the move by flying our programme wherever possible.
