Denmark further relaxes flight ban

COPENHAGEN, April 19 (BestGrowthStock) – Denmark on Monday opened
more of its airspace at altitudes above 20,500 feet (6 km) to
transit traffic, but extended the closure below that level
because of the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland, officials said.

Danish air traffic controller Naviair said that the closure
of Denmark’s airspace from the ground up to about 6 km would be
extended until at least 2 p.m. local time (1200 GMT) on Tuesday.

Earlier on Monday, Denmark opened its airspace above 35,500
feet, which meant that high-flying aircraft could pass through
Danish territory but planes could still not land or take off.

Naviair said it would give its next update on the situation
at around 0700 GMT on Tuesday.

Copenhagen airport and Danish airspace have been closed
since Thursday afternoon because of the volcanic eruption that
has disrupted aviation across Europe.
