The Irish Stock Exchange, which lists companies including Ryanair Holdings Plc and Aer Lingus Group Plc, will start an exchange for aviation-related debt as European and U.S. carriers seek additional sources of funding.
U.K. airports including Heathrow are starting to open after the government, the Civil Aviation Authority and manufacturers agreed on volcanic ash tolerance levels and inspections, Transport Secretary Andrew Adonis said.
Ryanair Holdings Plc dismissed Captain John Goss and said it plans to pursue legal action against the pilot after he was featured on a U.K. television program this week that questioned the airline’s safety.
Airlines were forced to ground 1,000 flights across Europe today as the return of the Icelandic ash cloud closed terminals from Northern Ireland to the Netherlands. Most of the region’s airspace was open again by the afternoon.
All U.K. airports were open today after a cloud of volcanic ash cleared, easing disruption that forced carriers including British Airways Plc and Continental Airlines Inc. to cancel more than 400 flights yesterday.
