Mount Etna volcano in Sicily, Italy has erupted overnight sending an ash cloud high into the air.

Eurocontrol have issued NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen) alerts advising of flight traffic re-routing in the region.

This is likely to cause some local disruption and delays around Catania-Fontanarossa Airport (LICC/CTA).

Pinkfroot are plotting the ash cloud, and its effect on air traffic, in our Plane Finder apps and on

Hopefully this is just a minor eruption and air traffic will not be significantly disrupted.
