British Airways has cancelled its flights to and from Bermuda today after Britain was forced to close all of its airports because of ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland.
A Bermuda-based British Airways spokesperson said customers were being asked to contact the airline at 1-800-Airways to re-book their flights or to ask for a refund.
Flights will not be re-booked for tomorrow, however, as the airline struggles to organise cancelled flights.
The spokesperson said: "Aircraft are in the wrong areas. They have had to go back to their destinations and they are all over the place.
"They had to divert, but we don't know what the effects will be tomorrow. It may change."
According to experts the ash coming from the volcano which has tiny particles of rock, glass and sand would be enough to jam the engines.
Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark are also among the European countries hit.
Two friends Katie O'Malley and Sarah Sweeney have been in Bermuda for the last two weeks and were expected to leave on the British Airways flight last night.
Both Miss O'Malley and Miss Sweeney received text messages around 8.30 a.m. yesterday telling them that their flights had been cancelled.
