Sweden to open 'almost all' airspace
12:09 CEST+02:00
Sweden is set to gradually open almost all of its airspace by 4pm on Wednesday, including Stockholm's three airports and one of Gothenburg's, the Swedish Civil Aviation Authority (Luftfartsverket - LFV) has confirmed.

"According to the forecast, most of Swedish airspace will be opened during the day (Wednesday)," LFV said in a statement.

Wednesday morning, Swedish airspace in the north was open, and LFV said Gothenburg and the entire south of the country, up to the regional Stockholm-Skavsta airport, 80 kilometres (50 miles) southeast of the Swedish capital, would be reopened to air traffic by 2pm.

The rest of Sweden, including the other Stockholm airports, in Bromma and the international Arlanda airport, were expected to open at 4pm, with only small pockets of airspace remaining closed to the west of the capital, it added.
