Dutch airspace reopens after ash disruptions

AMSTERDAM (BestGrowthStock) – Air traffic will resume from Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam and Rotterdam Airport following disruptions due to the cloud of volcanic ash, Dutch air traffic control authorities said on Monday.

Airports in the Netherlands had been closed since 0400 GMT (5 a.m. British time), but Dutch airspace was reopened from 1100 GMT. A spokesman for Schiphol said it may take a little while longer for the first flights to resume.

Schiphol airport had already re-opened its check-in counters for passengers in anticipation of the reopening.
