The disruption of air travel caused by the spread of volcanic ash from Iceland is worsened with no flights leaving or landing at airports in northern or central Europe. At least 23 countries closed their airspace in whole or in part on Saturday. Three quarters of transatlantic flights were cancelled as the clouds of ash and dust move further across the continent. With the weather and wind direction unlikely to change, little improvement is predicted for the next 24 hours. Dr. Mathew Robert from the Icelandic Meteorological Office explains.


"There are still \\ a tremendous quantity of ice from melting while erupting the volcano. And the reason why the glacier ice is so important is that the glacier ice is responsible for quenching the \\ larva that is appearing at the eruption side. As the quenching cools, fragments \\ tiny breezes \\. And this material has been \\, higher to the atmosphere and is travelling towards Europe."


A test flight is being carried out in Dutch airspace to assess the impact of the volcanic ash on the aircraft's parts. Officials said the aircraft belonging to the Dutch carrier KLM will fly at a lower altitude than usual to try to avoid flying through the massive ash cloud.

President Kaczynski's daughter, and twin brother came, as did past leaders like president Lech \\. Later, Poland's Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, said he still found it hard to comprehend the tragedy. On Sunday, President Kaczynski and the first lady will be buried in a state funeral in Krakow.


The White House has announced that President Obama won't be attending Mr. Kaczynski's state funeral on Sunday because of the travel chaos across Europe. He joins a growing list of world leaders and dignitaries who have cancelled plans to make the trip to Krawkow. They include the heir to the British throne, the Prince of Wales and the kings of Sweden and Spain. Another absentee will be the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The disruption of air travel caused by the spread of volcanic ash from Iceland has worsened with no flights leaving or landing at the airports in northern and central Europe. At least 23 countries closed their air space in whole or in part on Saturday. Three quarters of transatlantic flights were cancelled as the clouds of ash and dust move further cross the continent. With the weather and the wind direction unlikely to change, little improvement is predicted for the next 24 hours.

Doctor Mathew Roberts from the Icelandic meteorological office explains.

There still is a tremendous quantity of ice from melting while the erupting volcano, and / the reason why the place on ice is so important is that the great of ice is responsible for quenching the lava that disappearing at the eruption site. At the quench it cooled, fragments the tiny but abrasive shard and this material has been lofted high into the atmosphere and is traveling towards Europe.

A test flight is being carried out in Dutch airspace to assess the impact of the volcanic ash on aircraft parts. Officials said the aircraft belonging to the Dutch carrier KLM will fly at a lower altitude than usual to try to avoid flying through the massive ash cloud.
