AP Odd News
Half of normal flights may resume today
AMSTERDAM (AP) — Volcanic ash has thrown global travel into chaos, but if weather forecasts confirm the skies over Europe are clearing, air traffic over the continent could return to about 50 percent of normal levels on Monday, the European Union said.

The prospects for a return to normal air travel remained far from clear, however.

Several major airlines safely tested the skies with weekend flights that did not carry passengers. Germany temporarily loosened some airspace restrictions before the EU announcement Sunday evening, allowing limited operations from some of its largest airports before closing them again Sunday evening. Other countries enforced closures on their national airspace through late Sunday, Monday or even Tuesday as meteorologists warned that the airborne ash was still unpredictable and potentially dangerous.

The shutdowns imposed after an Icelandic volcano begun erupting Wednesday have stranded millions of travelers. They are costing the aviation industry, already reeling from a punishing economic period, at least $200 million a day, according to the International Air Transport Association.

EU Transport Commissioner Siim Kallas told reporters in Brussels that “it is clear that this is not sustainable. We cannot just wait until this ash cloud dissipates.”

Diego Lopez Garrido, state secretary for EU affairs for Spain, which holds the rotating EU presidency, said that “now it is necessary to adopt a European approach” instead of a patchwork of national closures and openings.

“Probably tomorrow one half of EU territory will be influenced. This means that half of the flights may be operating,” Lopez Garrido said about conditions Monday.

France’s transport minister, Dominique Bussereau, said there will be a meeting on Monday of European ministers affected by the crisis to coordinate efforts to reopen airspace.

Regulators need to take into account that airlines from Holland to Austria flew successful test flights on Sunday despite official warnings about the dangers of the plume, Lopez Garrido said.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines said that by midday Sunday it had flown four planes through what it described as a gap in the layer of microscopic dust over Holland and Germany. The ash began spewing from an Icelandic volcano Wednesday and has drifted across most of Europe, shutting down airports as far south and east as Bulgaria.
