提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
After 6 long and unprecedented days, Britain's airports have re-opened. There remain no-fly zones, but safe flight paths surround lingering ash cloud will be identified on a daily basis, and the body that regulate airlines has put in place special rules.
The CAA's revised airspace guidance, require airlines first to conduct their own risk assessment and develop operational procedures to address any remaining risks. Secondly, put in place an intensive maintenance ash damage inspection before and after each flight, and thirdly report any ash-related incidence to reporting scheme run by CAA.

British Airways, which called the flight ban unnecessary after staging its own test 2 days ago, with Willy Walsh on board, has been losing 20 million pounds a day, and is delighted by this new development.

I don't believe that it was necessary to impose a blanket ban on all UK airspace last Thursday. My personal belief's that we could have safely continued operation for a period of time. I think there were locations when the decision to close our airspace could have been justified, but as I said, you know, that's a personal view. We will sit down in due course, we'll share the data that we have, and we'll share the learning set we have had over this period, and I'm sure there will be others who will put forward a different view to me.

Meanwhile, a transport secretary was keen to stress that caution is not been thrown to the wind, that constant monitoring of the ash cloud and its potential for danger will continue.

There will still be no-fly zones. The MAT office and the civil Aviation authority advise me that on the basis of the current presence of the ash cloud, those no-fly zones will not affect any UK airports, but day-by-day announcement will be made in respect of those no-fly zones.

It was the day Britain was supposed to fly again, better late than never. Only a lucky few, like those aboard this month from Edinburgh to Stoner-away, managed to get into the air.  

Bit of a nervous flight anyway, but it's only 45 minutes flight from Stone-away, so I think I should survive.

These student have flew back into Edinburgh from Iceland and the geography field trip, as it turned out in the shadow of interrupting volcano.

We are back in one piece. We are now going 10 hour coach journey down south, to just north London. So, we are not home yet, but we are on our way.  

Cause we were flying 10 kilometers from the volcano in proper lengths. Yeah, you know, all the way back in England, people aren't even know what's like across the France. It's mad.

It's clear that those in the package holiday industry would've liked action more quickly.

We would have liked the government surround Europe to go around the table a little bit more quickly. We can certainly say that, but at the moment we are happy that things have changed. So far so good. We are now beginning the process of flying people home.

Europe's busiest airport Heathrow, as well as those right across the UK are back in business tonight, but safely dealing with the backlog built through 6 flightless days presents the next challenge.
