Well-met in the Ka-tet
I guess that would make it a "No" as an ETOPS airport, then...

VA is in the UHMM FIR almost daily.
Yes it is, usually what I term a volcanic belch :) as it isn't affecting PKC directly. No, I still won't be using any of those airfields even if it is just a Volc belch). Its kinda like TSSN, it gets your attention when you see it.

Suprisngly at some Shops you can still operate to airports reporting or forecast VA, under certain conditions after following some outline procedures.

Sometimes a METAR/TAF will report VA when there is very little ash still suspended in the air with no fallout.
