Costa Brava Flights

Posted on 18 April 2010 by admin

Tens of thousands of tourists are still stranded on the Costa Brava due to the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull.

The tourists mainly from Britain and Germany have no hope of leaving the area before Monday, as Airline Ryanair have stated the earliest flight may possible be reinstated on Monday at 1pm, however, as the cloud is still completely covering the UK, and much of the rest of Europe, this looks unlikely.

From the Ryanair website:

Ryanair, confirmed that based on current meteorological forecasts, and the continuing emission of volcanic ash into the atmosphere over Iceland, it has decided to cancel all scheduled flights to/from the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Northern France, Northern Germany, Poland and the Baltic States until 1300hrs on Mon 19 April. This advice is based on the current stable weather trends which continue to blow potentially dangerous volcanic ash across the British Isles, Scandinavia and the Northern European coastline.

This decision has been taken by Ryanair in order to allow passengers to apply for a full refund or rebook onto flights operating later next week, when Ryanair hopes that improved weather conditions may allow normal flight services to resume. Ryanair is anxious to give intending passengers as much information as possible, as far in advance as possible, to allow them to make alternative arrangements. Ryanair continues to post regular flight information updates on the flight information page on www.ryanair.com.

Passengers who have called the airline, have been advised to make their way to Girona airport from today in order to re-schedule flights. Due to the immense backlog, many passengers are likely to be stranded for up to another week.

  1. I can’t say I agree 100% regarding some points, but you’ve got an interesting writing style. Anyway, I enjoy the quality you bring to the blogosphere and that this isn’t just another abandoned, made-for-adsense site! Take care…
