Due to the latest volcanic activity in Iceland, low-cost air carrier Ryanair on Tuesday cancelled flights between Bratislava's M. R. Stefanik Airport (BTS) and Britain's Edinburgh, a BTS spokesperson said.

Dana Madunicka said that the cancelled flights affected the travel plans of around 300 passengers.

"Those whose flights have been cancelled can claim their money back using a form on the carrier's website, or they may re-book their flights free of charge," she said.

All other flights out of Bratislava scheduled for Tuesday took off normally.

"No cancellations have been announced yet," said Madunicka, noting that passengers should keep an eye on carriers' website updates more often at the moment as the situation may change.

The ash cloud from Grimsvotn, Iceland's most active volcano, has blocked air traffic in Northern Europe. Flights from Scotland have been grounded for now, and the cloud reached the shores of Norway and Denmark on Tuesday.
