Flights to and from Sicily’s Catania Airport, a bustling port city, recommenced at 9am this Monday following a temporary suspension due to the eruption of Mount Etna in close proximity.

The volcanic activity resulted in the deposition of volcanic ash on the airport’s runways and aircraft on Sunday, leading to the complete halt of all flights to and from Catania. The situation caused considerable disruption and inconvenience for travelers.

Catania Airport informs on twitter: “Etna update on Monday 22 May at 7:00. From 9 am the airport will be operational again and flight operations will be restored, with initial limitations. Delays may occur. Passengers are requested to inquire about flight status with the airlines.”
