Attracted the world’s attention

The volcanic eruption has attracted global attention, as have the six other eruptions that have occurred on the Reykjanes peninsula in the last three years.

Some travel industry operators have expressed concerns about the unintentional use of statements about the risks of volcanic eruptions on the Reykjanes peninsula since December.

The current eruption is the fourth since 18 December.
