Airports across Europe are still trying to get back to normal after more disruption over the weekend caused by Iceland’s spewing volcano – Portuguese flights, however, continue to be badly affected.

Lisbon airport is not expected to open until at least this afternoon, although services at Porto have started.

Italian airports also saw widespread travel chaos yesterday.

Milan’s two main airports saw some 230 flights grounded and dozens of delays because of the volcanic plume.

For the moment air traffic is taking off.

A similar situation on Sunday at other travel hubs across the continent.

Germany’s second largest airport Munich was closed with hundreds of passengers queuing inside the terminal building.

Misery for many – others however used the delay as an opportunity to take some time out.

Iceland’s volcano has shown increased activity in the last week, but has so far not caused the travel disruption witnessed during April, which grounded flights across Europe for five days.
