According to the Air Navigation Service Provider in Iceland, ash emission from the volcanic crater in Eyjafjallajökull has decreased so that the area in which all air traffic is banned has shrunk and all international airports in Iceland are open for air traffic, reports.

Icelandair, which has been using the airports in Akureyri and Glasgow for its international flights, will redirect its flights back to Keflavík in the afternoon. Iceland Express expects to fly from Keflavík to Copenhagen, Berlin and Brussels in the afternoon.

Most domestic flights have also resumed.
