Aviation authorities on red alert for ash cloud after Iceland

Iceland has reopened the airspace above its largest volcano after scientists downgraded its threat to 'orange'. 

The directive came after the country's Met Office today issued a 'red alert' early this morning after the Bardarbunga volcano erupted last night.

Even though no volcanic ash was detected, authorities took the unusual step of banning all flights over the volcano in a move that echoed the Eyjafjallajokull ash cloud disaster which brought European air travel to a standstill for six days in 2010.
