The eruption, which began late on Saturday and tapered off on Sunday morning, did not endanger any of the villages dotting the mountain's slopes and no evacuation was ordered.
The airport in nearby Catania said two airspace sectors above the volcano were closed to flights but that the airport itself was operating normally, including take-offs and departures.
Etna erupts occasionally. Its last major eruption occurred in 1992.
