(NECN/CNN) - Across Europe, airports are reopening a week after flights were grounded because of the volcano eruption in Iceland.
75% of scheduled flights in Europe are expected to be in the air today.
The crisis has stranded tens of thousands of passengers around the world.
The shutdown cost airlines more than $1.7 billion in revenue through yesterday.
The Icelandic volcano behind all the travel trouble is still erupting, but the eruptions are weaker and they involve less ash, but more lava.
