“We’d like to reassure customers due to travel to any other Canary Islands that our flights are currently operating as planned however we will continue to monitor the situation and contact them should their holiday be impacted.”
“We’d like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this time.”
La Palma airport has been forced to close and ground flights because of volcanic ash filling the air.
