Turkey ban on airspace due to volcanic ash cloud 'over'

The Turkish civil aviation has announced that the flight restrictions in Turkish air space caused by a volcanic ash cloud were over as of 4:15 p.m. Turkish local time.

There were no more restrictions in Turkish air space due to the ash cloud caused by the recent eruption of Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull, a statement from the Turkish Transportation Ministry's Directorate General of Civil Aviation said on Monday.

"As a result of our assessment of current meteorological reports, flight restrictions that were announced earlier have been lifted as of 4:15 p.m. Turkish local time as the ash cloud has left the air space over our country," the statement said.

A volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland erupted last Wednesday, for the second time in less than a month, melting ice and shooting smoke into the air and forcing hundreds of people to leave their homes.

After the eruption, the resulting ash plume halted air traffic over much of Europe.
