Aviation.ca reports that Canadian flights to London are being affected by the volcano in Iceland:
"Canadian flights to London are being cancelled today due to a volcanic ash cloud which has erupted from an Icelandic Volcano. The volcano which first erupted on 21st March 2010 near Eyjafjallajoekull glacier sent lava a hundred metres high. And today the ash cloud from this volcano is moving south affecting the UK and many other European Airports. Experts have warned that the tiny particles of rock, glass and sand contained in the ash cloud from the still-erupting volcano could be sufficient to jam aircraft engines."
Travelers are advised to contact their airline. Here's additional reporting from CBC News: Iceland volcano ash halts European flights.
