The airport on the Spanish island of La Palma was closed again Thursday morning due to an ash cloud caused by the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano. This was stated by the Spanish airport operator Aena.

“The airport is no longer operating at the moment,” an Aina spokesperson said, adding that the hubs need to be cleaned up on the runways. This is the second airport closure since the volcano erupted on September 19.

Pinter Airways canceled all of its flights to and from La Palma on Wednesday evening, so it can safely return again. Canaryfly also announced on Twitter that it will no longer fly to Canary Island.

Flights to and from La Palma were already briefly halted on 25 September due to deteriorating conditions caused by the volcanic eruption. It has gradually resumed since then.

The eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano has already caused severe damage to the island of 85,000 inhabitants. No one was hurt, but more than 6,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes. The lava destroyed more than 1,000 buildings.
