Flights restrictions in the UK caused by a huge ash cloud from an Icelandic volcano will remain in place until at least 1am on Saturday.

The latest advice from the Tenerife authorities is for intending flight passengers to most Northern European destinations not to travel to the airport unless they have confirmation that their particular flight is leaving and when. This way they are hoping to avoid unnecessary chaos at the airports.

People are advised to contact their tour operator or airline to find out what is happening with their flights. For more information call Freefone Turismo de Tenerife: 00800 100 101 00 where operators can offer help in English, German, French and Spanish. Tour operators are also being asked to check first before bringing bus loads of people to the airport. The Spanish Airport Authority also has a helpline 902 404 704 & el +34 91 321 10 00 with information about upcoming flight cancellation.
