LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's air traffic control body said on Monday it had agreed the creation of a new flying zone with Irish officials and aircraft manufacturers to limit the disruption caused by ash emitted by an Icelandic volcano.

The new "Time Limited Zone" will be put in place over UK and Irish airspace from midday on Tuesday, allowing airlines to fly through areas of medium ash density that were previously off limits, it said in a statement.
