Finnish airspace closed until at least Wed. morning

HELSINKI, April 20 (BestGrowthStock) – Finland’s airport operator
Finavia said on Tuesday the Nordic country’s airspace would be
closed until at least 0600 GMT on Wednesday due to the ash cloud
spewed by an Icelandic volcano last week.

A spokeswoman said further updates could still come later in
the day.

The European Union said earlier there had been slow progress
in opening up European airspace after the cancellation of many
flights because of the volcanic ash cloud.

A spokeswoman for the executive European Commission said the
situation was unprecedented and disruptions to flights were
expected to continue this week.
