Flights are still grounded!

Disruption due to volcanic activity in Iceland
Last update: April 18th, 1645 UTC

No Lufthansa flights worldwide until Monday, April 19th, 1200 UTC

Like all other airlines, Lufthansa must comply with directives issued by ministries and air traffic control. Most European airports are closed. In Germany, all airports have shut down. All arrivals at and departures from these airports have been cancelled until further notice.

Since a reliable forecast regarding the airspace restrictions is still not possible, Lufthansa is forced to cancel all flights scheduled for Sunday 18 April, and tomorrow, April 19th 2010, until 1200 UTC.
Passengers are requested not to travel to the airports.
Should the airspace be opended sustainably, we will do everything to start flight operations as quickly as we can.
