Volcano Costs Airlines $200 Million Per Day: 17,000 Flights Cancelled, 120,000 People Affected


airport-jewsThe airline industry is losing a “conservative estimate” of $200 million per day in revenues due to disruptions caused by the eruption of an Icelandic volcano, the International¬†Air Transport Association said today.

“In addition to lost revenues, airlines will incur added costs for re- routing of aircraft, care for stranded passengers and stranded aircraft at various ports,” it said in a statement.

Airports are closed and flights canceled across large parts of Europe as aviation authorities fear the ashes from the volcano could damage airplane engines.
