Iceland volcano prompts airport closure

Experts say eruption will not cause repeat of last year’s European air traffic standstill.

Iceland’s most active volcano has started erupting, prompting the closure of the country’s main international airport.

But experts say the eruption of the Grimsvotn volcano is unlikely to cause a repeat of the disturbance to European air traffic caused by another Icelandic volcano last year.

Last year, another eruption led to a major air travel chaos for days, affecting some 10 million travellers.
