Ash cloud reaches Scandinavia

Denmark to be affected initially, then possibly Sweden

It is likely that ash from the Grimsvotn volcano will reach parts of Scandinavia on Tuesday, with the possibility of affecting flights in parts of Denmark initially and later Sweden. The European air traffic agency Eurocontrol said that around 250 flights have been cancelled in British airspace on Tuesday.
“According to the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) in London, there is a strong possibility that the ash cloud may impact parts of Denmark, southern Scandinavia and Germany in the course of the day. This would have some impact on flights,” it said.
