EASA issues bulletin on flight in airspace with a low contamination of volcanic ash

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) reports that it has been working intensively with aircraft and engine manufacturers to establish appropriate measures to ensure aircraft remain airworthy when flown in airspace with low levels of contamination from volcanic ash. There are currently no “volcanic ash” certification specifications and the Agency is collaborating with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to establish new standards.

EASA issued a Safety Information Bulletin with recommendations to operators.
