FlightRadar shows that UK plc is back in biz

Planes are once more flying busily over the skies of the United Kingdom, after European countries changed the rules about how much ash is dangerous to jet engines.

That will come as a huge relief to a number of industries, including the tech industry, as things were looking distinctly wobbly on the supply front.

FlightRadar24 shows that planes are on the move again, although the airlines are struggling to cope with the backlog as well as the problem of planes not being where they should be.

Nearly 100,000 planes in Europe have been cancelled over the last six days.

Apparently we’re not out of the wood yet, however. There’s still a risk that plumes of ash from that nuisance Icelandic volcano may return.
