Air space over Norway has been opened
The ash cloud that led to the closure in the morning, is out in the North Sea and is moving away from Norway. It means that aircraft and helicopter traffic is already at it again.
“Air space is open and I’m optimistic now at the prospect that this will last, “said Airport Manager Leif A. Loretzen to aftenbladet.no. The ash cloud as surprisingly closed the airport last night and into morning, has now withdrawn from the Norwegian airspace. As it looks now, the situation looks brighter than ever before after the ash clouds caused the closing of airports across Europe.
What is the message to air passenger end now?
“Pay attention to the airlines’ websites on the Internet. Here, departures and routes are monitored continuously. The airlines will also, as far as possible, make direct contact with their passengers, but it is important that each one follows this up yourself so well you can,” says Lorentzen.
Airline companies have a big job ahead to get all solitaire card games to go up, but Lorentzen believe that within a few hours traffic will begin to approach the rhythm that makes this move towards a normal situation. And he is optmistisk that it will now hold – that the traffic soon hovers as normal.
