Yesterday our international air port (Keflavik) was closed due to bad weather.  Air planes were diverted to Akureyri (in north) and Egilsstadir (in East).

Now the weater is getting back to normal, and plains are coming back to the Keflavik airport.

The Manchester schoolchildren, along with other passengers from the airplanes from London and Dublin, were supplied with blankets and pillows and overnighted at Akureyri Airport. They will be flown to Reykjavik this morning, where the planned part of their Iceland adventure can commence.
Two jets from Copenhagen had to land at Egilsstadir in the eastern part of Iceland where similar provisions were made
