The opening of Lelystad Airport is being made more difficult because the airport does not yet have a nitrogen permit. The Hague sources confirm reports about this from RTL Nieuws.

    The Council of Ministers will meet on Friday to discuss the matter. That will be a broader conversation about Dutch aviation. De Telegraaf reported last week that Schiphol must shrink by at least ten percent because of noise pollution.

    Previously, the focus was mainly on growth at Schiphol. Things are now turning, according to insiders. Of the annual number of flight movements of 500,000, only 440,000 will remain. It is expected that VVD minister Harbers (Aviation) will provide an explanation during a press conference tomorrow.
