There will be no restrictions in Irish airspace caused by the Icelandic ash cloud for at least the next 24 hours, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) has said.
Issuing its 3pm update this afternoon, the IAA said that based on the latest information from the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) in London, all Irish airports are set to remain open.
"However, a small number of European destinations may be affected by the ash cloud thereby impacting on flights to / from Irish airports," the agency said.
Ash from the Grimsvotn volcano has caused air travel disruption elsewhere in Europe with hundreds of flights cancelled.
Passengers planning to travel by air over the coming days are advised to regularly check their airline websites and the IAA website in advance of going to the airport.
Passengers should also check the status of the airports they are travelling to.
The next IAA update will be at 9pm.
