Ash cloud forces Air Malta to cancel three Catania flights

Air Malta has cancelled three flights to Catania following the closure of the city’s airport due to volcanic ash from Mount Etna. Yesterday’s flight KM642/3 and today’s flights KM640/1 and KM642/3 were cancelled. The airline said that this afternoon it will operate an extra flight to Palermo and organise land transport between the two airports. Other passengers from Catania this evening will be re-routed to sea passenger services. (Source: timesofmalta.com, 16-Dec-2013)
