Catania's Airport (Sicily). Etna volcano: today suspended arrivals and departures

The flight activities may resume in the afternoon

Sac (Catania's Airport management company) announces that due to the eruptive activity of Mount Etna and the simultaneous emission of volcanic ash into the atmosphere, the Crisis Unit has ordered the closure of airspace sectors B2 and B3. The runway is unusable due to a significant fall of volcanic ash on the airfield, and therefore, both arrivals and departures have been suspended. Flight operations will resume once the volcanic ash has been removed. At the moment, it is estimated that flight activities may resume at 3:00 PM.

Passengers are therefore urged not to go to the airport without first checking the status of their flight with the airline.

Further updates will follow.
