AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – The European Commission is set to approve charter flights from the Lelystad airport in the Netherlands, national broadcaster NOS reported on Friday, citing a draft document of the approval.

Lelystad, about 60 kilometres northeast of Amsterdam, is owned by The Schiphol Group, which operates the country’s biggest airport – Schiphol.

An EU decision would not be the final word on Lelystad’s development, as there is a strong lobby against the airport’s expansion due to noise and pollution concerns.
