Air Berlin decided to cancel a flight to Iceland yesterday even though the state of emergency has been called off, reports RÚV.

According to Sigþór Kristinn Skúlasson, CEO of Airport Associates, the airline feared that the plane might get stuck in Iceland in the event of a disruptive ash cloud brought on by volcanic eruption.

As reported, the Icelandic Met Office and Civil Protection authorities have reduced their measurement of Bárðabunga volcano from “emergency” to “alert”, and air travel is open again.

All flights in and out of Iceland are operating normally.
