The airport on the Spanish island of La Palma has been forced to close.
Flights to and from the Spanish island of La Palma have been cancelled as a result of an ash cloud spewing from a volcanic eruption that has now lasted for a week.
La Palma Airport operator Aena said on Twitter that plane traffic was suspended "due to the accumulation of ash" in the air.
They said: "At this time, La Palma airport is inoperative due to ash accumulation.
"The rest of the Canarian airports are still operating. There are airlines that are suspending their flights in La Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife Norte and Tenerife Sur."
The company said other airports in the Canary Islands are still operational.
La Palma is one of the seven islands that make up the Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean.
The volcanic eruption that started last Sunday is the first in 50 years on La Palma, which has a population of about 85,000.
The intensity of the eruptions has increased in recent days, prompting the evacuation of three additional villages on the island. Almost 7,000 people have had to leave their homes.
Emergency crews pulled back from the volcano on Friday as explosions sent molten rock and ash over a wide area.
Lava flows have destroyed hundreds of buildings on the island's western side.
Flights direct to La Palma are most commonly available from Manchester Airport in the North West.
The UK's Foreign Office said: "On Sunday 19 September 2021, at approximately 15.15 local time, there was a volcanic eruption on the Spanish Canary Island of La Palma. The immediate areas of Los Llanos de Aridane, Tazacorte and El Paso have been evacuated.
"If you are in an affected area you should follow the advice of local authorities, including social media updates from Cabildo de La Palma.
"If you are planning to travel to the island imminently you are encouraged to contact your tour operators / airlines."
