Austria reopens airspace, many flights canceled
By ASSOCIATED PRESS

Austrian authorities have reopened the country's airspace after volcanic ash forced its closure.

The Austria Press Agency reports that permission to resume takeoffs and landings took effect at 5 am local time Monday, but says it is unclear if the airspace will remain open all day.

Airport Web sites indicate that many flights remain canceled.

Austro Control, the country's national aviation authority, first imposed a flight ban on Friday as a cloud of ash spewed by an Icelandic volcano moved eastward and caused chaos for travelers across much of Europe.
