Stranded passengers in Europe, especially within the United Kingdom, may face further travel delays as a new cloud of dust approaches the English coastline.
Various air traffic control organizations, including Nats, say that the ‘situation is worsening’ in various areas.
“The volcano eruption in Iceland has strengthened and now a new ash cloud is spreading south and east towards the UK,” reported Nats.
“This demonstrates the dynamic and rapidly changing conditions in which we are working,” the Nats statement continued.
British Airways did announce that by Tuesday to Wednesday, the company hoped to resume at least some flights.
The International Air Transport Association estimates that this ash crisis is costing the aviation industry approximately $260 million dollars a day. The International Air Transport Association is also highly critical of the European response to this crisis, while The British Air Transport Association asks the public and government “to commit to standing behind the industry financially during this very difficult time.”
