Serious disruption of air traffic to and from the Netherlands
Thursday 15, April 2010
Air traffic to and from the Netherlands will be gradually halted in the next few hours. Current expectations are that air traffic to and from the Netherlands will come to a complete standstill after 19.00 hours this evening, as a result of a cloud of volcanic ash caused by a volcanic eruption on Iceland.
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and the airlines are asking passengers to stay tuned for further developments and contact their airline before leaving for the airport, to verify that their flight is still scheduled to depart.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
