Gulf carriers unaffected by Iceland volcano eruption

Gulf carriers Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways have said their scheduled services have not been affected by the eruption of Iceland's most active volcano, Grimsvotn, on Saturday evening, Gulf News has reported. In April last year, an eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano grounded 100,000 flights in the first six days, collectively costing the three Gulf carriers an estimated $130m (Dhs477.4m).
