Almost Back To Normal

Palma International Airport (PMI) was almost back to normal yesterday, thank you very much, as was most of the airspace in Spain and, really, most of air traffic in Europe. After six days of volcanic ash and a scare of nerves, courtesy of that unpronounceable volcano in Iceland, some 21,000 flights were back crisscrossing Europe and the North Atlantic in the course of the last 24 hours. Good.

All of Spain’s airports were back in operation. Notwithstanding, 547 flights were cancelled in Spain yesterday, out of 5,231 scheduled flights. In Palma, 525 flights were scheduled for yesterday, but 50 had to be cancelled. For today, the Spanish Airport Authority AENA expects an almost complete return to normality in flight schedules, unless the volcanic exhausts increase again with more magma eruptions, or unless the wind changes directions. Across Europe, it is assumed that 75 % of all scheduled flights will be carried out, today. Stay tuned.

The photo was taken near Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 21st, 2010. The time was 14:23:26.
