This also has a knock on effect on International flights globally as they could not land or take off from Europe. These particles clog up the engines of aircraft that attempt to fly through them, and this is the reason for aviation disruption.

Finally, many companies had contingency plans in place for an emergency such as this, so could cope better, Tesco circumvented the ash cloud by flying Kenyan produce into Spain and then using road haulage for example.
