  • Flying during the eruptions of mount Etna

    Flying during Mt. Etna eruptionMount Etna is the biggest active Vulcan in Europe. It raises high upon Catania and it's airport Fontanarossa. Besides the massive lava eruptions it often shows his activiy with explosions of small glowing rocks and ashes (which fall on surrounding villages) and high smoke columns. Although Catania's airport is not in danger to be hit by the lava, sometimes flights are reduced or the airport is even closed for the bad view or for the ash clouds, which could damnage the airplans. Often newspapers report in a too catastrofic way, but if you plan to arrive or depart from Catania's airport in the period of an eruption of the vulcan you should better take previous information. The website of Catania Fontanarossa Airport (in italian and english) is always updated about the state of flights. Usually the air companies inform their clients about changes in time, but in case of activity of Mount Etna it can happen that the airport is closed from one moment to the other. Sometimes it depends on the direction of the wind whether the ashes are going to fall on the airport's site or not. What possibilities are there for the passengers ? Mainly flights delay for cleaning work on the runway.
