And if you don’t fly, you won’t have problems any volcanic ash cloud which stops flights in British airspace. So, holiday in the UK and avoid the volcanic ash cloud.

However a volcano in Iceland has put an end to many people holiday dreams, and created some holiday nightmares instead.When Eyjafjallajokull erupted a volcanic ash cloud was released into the air, this cloud drifted over the UK, which meant that it wasn’t safe for planes to fly. British airspace was closed for several days, meaning that many people couldn’t take their eagerly awaited holiday. And many more couldn’t fly home.

Is this volcanic ash problem likely to happen againNo one knows for sure whether Eyjafjallajokull will erupt again, or whether its neighbour Katla will erupt causing the same ash cloud based problems. What we do know is that when Eyjafjallajokull last erupted in 1821, magma flowed for two years. So it’s likely we haven’t heard the last of Iceland and its volcanoes.
