Abstract

Last April, European air traffic was heavily disrupted by the volcanic ash cloud generated by the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull. A (partial) shortcut to the all but impossible task of estimating all those impacts is an analysis of financial markets. In this paper, we will provide a first basic estimate of some of the economic effects of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano’s eruption, focusing on the airline industry, together with some evaluations of potential gainers, namely alternative transport industries.
