Heathrow Airport in London opened for operations today and British Airways will resume all long-haul flights out of the UK capital
With Heathrow Airport opening up after widespread flight disruptions caused by volcanic ash from Iceland, Air India and Jet Airways today readied themselves to resume operation to the UK. However, Kingfisher Airlines is yet to take a decision.
Officials of Air India and Jet Airways said that the airlines were prepared to begin operations as per their schedules.
They, however, said that their decision to resume operations could be reviewed in case of fresh influx of volcanic ash. The Indian carriers had stopped flights to European destinations last Thursday.
A British Airways spokesperson said that Heathrow Airport in London opened for operations at 2AM IST today and all long-haul flights of the airline out of London will be resumed.
Air France and Lufthansa had yesterday operated flights from India to Paris and Munich after six days of disruption but services to other European destinations had remained suspended. They were the first airlines to resume services to Europe from India after the gap.
