Emirates airline forced to divert Glasgow flight

Iceland's volcanic ash cloud has forced Emirates Airline to revise its flight schedule, Gulf News has reported. The Dubai-based carrier said yesterday it diverted its Glasgow-bound flight EK027 from Dubai to Manchester as a result of the volcanic ash. "All other flights to the UK and Europe continue to operate as per the schedule. Emirates continues to monitor the situation closely, in addition to liaising with the relevant authorities regarding the movement of the volcanic ash cloud," an Emirates spokesperson said.
