Over 40 flights cancelled at Budapest airport due to Iceland volcano

More than 40 flights have been cancelled so far at Budapest's international Ferihegy airport due to the Iceland volcano eruption, the spokesman of airport operator Budapest Airport told MTI on Friday.

Flights have been suspended mostly on western European routes, said Károly Szilágyi.

Services to and from southern and eastern Europe are on schedule, he added.

He advised travellers to look up their carrier on the internet before leaving for the airport.

Hungarian airline Malév has cancelled ten flights while low-cost carrier Wizz Air has abandoned 32 of its Friday services to destinations in the north, the airlines told MTI.

Volcanic ash drifting to the east caused massive disruptions in air traffic and the closure of several airports in Western Europe. Volcanic ash can damage aircraft engines and cut visibility. (MTI)
