The ash clouds are drifting in the skies of the region after the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier erupted on Wednesday, Apr 14.

This has led to the airports across Norther Europe call off flights and shut down operations on Thursday, Apr 15 as the clouds will affect the visibility and in turn pose a safety threat to the flights.
