Lelystad commercial flights delayed

OPENING LELYSTAD Airport in the Netherlands to commercial airline traffic has been delayed from next April 1 until 2020. A new terminal is being built at the facility, 34 miles (55km) east of Amsterdam, to provide additional capacity and relieve pressure at Schiphol which is almost full. On February 21, Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management, Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, announced the opening would be delayed by at least a year to allow for more research into noise pollution and other environmental issues. The minister also claims that errors were made in noise calculations completed as part of the airport’s original environmental impact report.
