LONDON -- British airport operator BAA Ltd. says all flights at London's Heathrow Airport have been suspended for the rest of the day, causing travel chaos as ash clouds from Iceland's spewing volcano halted air traffic across Europe.

A BAA spokesman said Thursday that no further flights are expected to arrive or land at the airport, which is Europe's busiest.

Heathrow handles over 1,200 flights and 180,000 passengers per day.
