Hungarian national carrier Malév cancelled a Dublin-Budapest flight scheduled to depart around noon on Tuesday because of new volcanic ash risk, Malév spokesman Ádám Hegedüs told MTI in the morning.
Currently no other flights are affected, Hegedüs said. A decision on whether Malév's Budapest-Dublin flight will take off in the evening is expected to be taken around noon, he added.
Flights in and out of the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland were grounded in the morning on Tuesday as a plume of ash from a volcano in Iceland drifted south. A cloud of ash from the same volcano brought air traffic to a near standstill in Europe for six days in April because of fears of the effect of the ash on aircraft engines. (MTI-ECONEWS)
