• Operations on the new fifth runway at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport began on February 20. Initially, the 12,467-ft Runway 18R/36L is open only at night, but from July it is scheduled to start being used for limited daytime operations until November 1, when it becomes fully operational around the clock. The runway is configured to allow aircraft to take off and land over less densely populated surrounding areas to reduce noise affects.
