More countries are closing their air space to flights, as a cloud of volcanic ash continues  spreading over Europe. The eruption, which occurred on Wednesday morning under Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier, has caused 17,000 flight cancellations around the world. It’s expected to take days before operations return to normal.

Many airlines are waiving penalties for those who wish to change their flights. We’re also waiving Orbitz cancellation fees for any flight, car, hotel or activity for customers who’ve been affected by the situation. For more information, visit the Orbitz online customer support page.
