AMSTERDAM - An official for Amsterdam's Schiphol airport says the authorities do not see a need to take extra measures in connection with the swine flu outbreak in Mexico. KLM has a daily flight to Mexico City.

The airline says departing passengers are already filling in a form about the state of their health.

The Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam says it is not concerned about the virus.

So far, no cases have been reported in the Netherlands. If any cases are reported, patients will be sent to the centre.
