The Zwanenburgbaan Runway is available again for air traffic as of today after major maintenance has been carried out. The maintenance ensures that the track can be used safely for years to come. The runway can be fully deployed again in good visibility, but not immediately for landings from the south in poor visibility. To this end, the renewed Instrument Landing System (ILS) must be checked by measuring flights (15, 13 and 20 May) and after that a validation period of at least thirty days applies.
