Inbound and outbound flights from Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic are grounded as aviation authorities have close airspace from 0600 to 1200 GMT Tuesday, the BBC reports. The presence of new volcanic ash from the same volcano that grounded air travel in April has been reported.
Belfast International, Belfast City and City of Derry airports will reportedly be closed, and airspace over Scotland’s Outer Hebrides was closed from 1800 BST on Monday, the BBC reported.
Affected flights include those of Aer Lingus, Ryanair, Aer Arann, and EasyJet carriers.
