The latest news suggests clear skies for the UK from 7AM onwards, including Manchester. However, foreign visitors also have to worry about their trip back on Sunday or Monday.

Civil Aviation Authority Chief Executive Andrew Hains outlined the problem:

The situation for UK airspace, particularly over the North and Scotland, remains unprecedented. [...] Scientists are tracking the cloud's movements constantly but its location changes frequently, depending on the strength of eruptions and prevailing winds. When the ash level exceeds that agreed as safe by the industry we have to restrict flights accordingly.
