The eruption of Iceland's most active volcano does not threaten air traffic safety in the Polish air space, a Polish Air Navigation Services Agency official said on Monday.

Air traffic over Poland is normal and safe and there are no forecasts speaking about the worsening of the current situation, said Grzegorz Hlebowicz, the spokesperson of the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PAZP).

The Grimsvotn volcano burst into life on Saturday. It put Europe on high alert on Monday as a billowing ash cloud drifted towards Scotland and threatened to shut down airports across the northern edge of the continent.

In April 2010, the airspace over Poland and many other European countries was closed for a few days due to the dangers posed by clouds of volcanic ash from the Eyjafjoell volcano in Iceland.
