AFP - All long-haul passenger services to and from France and three quarters of shorter flights are operating as scheduled, the civil aviation agency said Wednesday, after days of disruption caused by volcanic ash.
   
Officials at both Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and the smaller Orly said that 100 percent of long-haul flights were running as normal.
   


The DGAC civil aviation authority said France's airspace and all of its airports had re-opened after safety restrictions designed to protect flights from volcanic ash coming south from Iceland were lifted.
   
At Paris' main hub Charles de Gaulle, officials said 90 percent of short and medium-haul flights were confirmed, along with extra services to bring stranded tourists back from Turkey and North Africa.
