Germany’s air traffic controllers say they are gradually reopening the country’s airspace after days of closures and limited activity.
Only the two Berlin airports were open in the morning.
The government agency Deutsche Flugsicherung said Wednesday it will gradually start reopening the skies for regular flights during the morning.
“There is a good chance that the airspace above Germany and all international airports will remain available until late in the evening,” the agency said.
Airlines were already being permitted to operate a limited number of flights to and from all airports – up to 800 flights in total Tuesday – under so-called visual flight rules.
