Lelystad Airport: citizens insist on postponement – and succeed!

Lelystad Airport won’t open next year, too many problems‘, said ChristenUnie, one of the four coalition parties in Dutch government, on January 4 (DutchNews.nl). ‘Trust in the government is now zero and officials will have to be extremely careful to build it up again.’

Despite all the mistrust, Minister Van Nieuwenhuizen decided to postpone the opening of Lelystad Airport for another year, until 2019.
