Dutch air traffic resumes normal service

22nd April 2010, Comments 0 comments

Dutch air traffic returned to normal Thursday, with the exception of some services to Scandinavia, Dutch air traffic control said, as the threat diminished from a cloud of volcanic ash.

"It is normal. There are no restrictions, no limitations," Marjolein Wenting, a spokesman for Dutch aviation control, told AFP.

Only the links with a number of Scandinavian airports remained uncertain due to the return of the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland.

A thousand flights were scheduled to depart from Amsterdam-Schiphol airport on Thursday, and all passengers who had been blocked left in the afternoon, an airport spokesman said.
