Listening to my scanner now, VFR traffic has been stopped anywhere from south of Heathrow. North of Heathrow VFR flights are patchy depending on the sector providing basic service. The highest i've heard a flight was at 240.

UK, Ireland, Sweden and Norway have all closed their airspace.  The Netherlands and Denmark will close their airspace in the next few hours.  Not a good day to be flying.

Even EGLL (Heathrow) is shut down.  And British Airways has grounded their flights for the day.

"We expect around 11,000 flights to take place today in European airspace. On a normal day, we would expect 28,000," said Kyla Evans, a spokeswoman for Eurocontrol. "The cloud of volcanic ash is continuing to move east and southeast."

It is now affecting Newfoundland Canada.  CYYT was closed early today but it looks like they are having limited traffic right now.

Sounds like they are opening up the airspace tomorrow.   With 12 tracks tomorrow 3 eastbound along with 9 westbound for the daytime tracks across the Atlantic.  This is the first time I have seen dual tracks.  https://www.notams.jcs.mil/common/nat.html  is the website to take a look at all the tracks for the day.

One more article...

"LONDON — Britain's government said U.K. airports — including London's Heathrow Airport — would reopen Tuesday, as European terminals lurched back to life while the danger from Iceland's volcanic ash plume eased.

Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis said all British airports would reopen at 2100GMT (1700EST), allowing passenger services into the U.K. to resume. Britain's Civil Aviation Authority said all U.K. airspace would reopen at the same time.

British Airways said it hoped to land as many as 25 flights Tuesday evening — from the United States, Africa and Asia into London."

How can that be that a volcano that started in Iceland is making a cloud in new found land and Canada?
