Due to an oncoming cloud of ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland, Croatia has closed Zadar and Split airports. The flight from Zagreb to Pula via Zadar will not be making the stop in the city, while the Zagreb to Rome service, scheduled to operate via Split will proceed directly to the Italian capital without the stop over, the HRT public broadcaster reports.

Some airports in Portugal, Spain and Italy have been closed while closures in Austria and Germany are expected tonight. Last month European aviation was paralysed by the volcanic ash cloud.


  1. Yikes.

    I'm supposed to fly from Belgrade to Milan this Tuesday.

    I hope I don't get cancelled!

  2. Tako a train! It's a fun trip! From Belgrade to Venice by night train, sleeping and it's cool, and then coffee in Venice, and fast train (3hrs I think) to Milano Centrale! :)

  3. I was planning on doing that, but I said "forget it", when it's only 15 more euros or less to fly.

    Plus, tickets are already purchased
