Articles, LondonUnlockedEditorComment


Volcanic ash continues to ground flights in and out of the UK, and across most of northern Europe.

In the heat of the General Election campaign, both the Government and Conservatives have set aside time to try to come up with plans to get the estimated 150,000 Britons stranded abroad back home despite the shortage of transport solutions across Europe.

Meanwhile, those stranded try their luck to get back the UK through any means possible.

For those wanting to get home or hoping to travel, the BBC is providing a fine page for regular updates on the crisis here.

Meanwhile, Simon Calder in The Independent reviews what this means for the industry and passengers.
