Update: No volcanic ash impact on Irish airspace

The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) has confirmed that the Icelandic volcano is unlikely to have any impact on Irish airspace for at least the next 24 hours.

In its latest update issued at 7.30pm this evening, the IAA said that all Irish airports 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 IAA said.

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.
