NATS advises that the current restrictions across UK controlled airspace due to the volcanic ash cloud will remain in place until at least 1am (local) on Tuesday April 20.
A NATS spokesman said: "Conditions around the movement of the layers of the volcanic ash cloud over the UK remain dynamic. We will continue to monitor the location of this ash cloud and look for opportunities to get aircraft moving again, whilst of course maintaining safety.
"NATS is maintaining dialogue with the Met Office and with the UK's safety regulator, the CAA, in respect of the international civil aviation policy we follow in applying restrictions to use of airspace.
