Ash cloud aftermath

In today’s international press review, we focus on Europe’s growing anger over the five day air traffic chaos.

Flights are starting to resume across Europe and the news has made the front page of many international papers this morning, including The Independent, the Daily Mail and the Daily Express.

The “battle begins to clear the backlog”, says the latter. The article focuses on the man is responsible for “shutting down Europe”: Richard Deakin, the chief executive of National Air Traffic Services.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal wonders what’s going to happen next. It gives us three possible scenarios. One, that the eruption ends... Two, that it triggers another, larger eruption. Or three, that it lasts several weeks or even months, meaning that aviation authorities will have to play “cat and mouse” and allow planes to fly, depending the cloud’s location.

The Wall Street Journal also talks about traveler’s stranded pets. Dozens of dogs, horses and even turtles are reportedly stuck in transit across the world.

The Eyjafjallajokull volcano has not only affected Europe, but also China. The China Daily says the upcoming Auto Show is likely to suffer from the lack of tourists.
