Norway: Offshore Helicopter Traffic Back to Normal, Statoil Says


Statoil’s helicopter operators report that today’s traffic is not expected to be affected by the ash cloud (updated 25 May 09.00 CET).

All helicopter flights are expected to run to normal schedule. Air Transportation is keeping updated on the weather forecast and is still keeping in continuous touch with the helicopter operators, but does not expect that the ash cloud will affect operations today.

It was an eruption from the Grimsvötn volcano in Island that created the ash cloud that caused problems for the helicopter traffic to the Norwegian continental shelf yesterday
