European officials carved up the sky today, creating three zones to more quickly break the flight deadlock caused by volcanic ash flowing from Iceland over Europe. Many more flights will be able to take off tomorrow, the bloc said. The move comes as Icelandic TV showed a second, larger volcano beginning to erupt, MSNBC reports.
European countries can resume airline traffic in designated "caution zones" where the threat of ash is less dangerous. Under the accord, one area will remain entirely off limits to flights. Another area will be open to all flights and a third area will be a caution zone in which some flights will be allowed. The EU said as of tomorrow morning "we should see more planes starting to fly."
