Etna erupting: the consequences at Catania airport

Following closure, Catania Fontanarossa airport is back in operation

Etna has created problems again in the area of Catania and its surroundings. Following some eruptive activities, the crater produced a cloud about 11 kilometers in size. In several countries, ash and pyroclastic material has spread very quickly.

The Catania Fontanarossa airport was forced to temporarily stop its operations. The hijacked or suspended flights have been numerous and have caused a lot of inconvenience to passengers about to depart from Catania.

On February 21, air traffic was completely suspended. No flight had the opportunity to land or take off from Catania.

Reopening of the Catania Vincenzo Bellini airport

Fortunately, after a period of blocking of a few hours, the airport of Catania Vincenzo Bellini is back in operation.

The flight activity, while active, was very limited. The airport has asked its passengers to inquire in advance about the status of their flight by contacting their respective airlines .

Gradual return to flight and eruption monitoring activities

Although operational, Catania airport has decided to limit departures and arrivals at the airport, until the end of the emergency.

The volcano's activities have caused concern since the early morning hours of 21 February 2022. The monitoring activities have detected the first movements as early as 9:00.

The volcanic activity of Etna has given rise to a lava overflow that has spread to the south-west.

The situation is still under observation, but, for the moment, activities at Catania Vincenzo Bellini airport seem to have stabilized.
