Ripples in air traffic caused by the closing of Heathrow Airport have passed, officials at Kastrup Airport announced Friday morning.
'Arrivals and departures are back to normal and none of the airlines are reporting cancellations or delays, so we expect today to be a good day,' Anette Haaning, the spokesperson for the airport, told public service broadcaster DR.
Due to the closure of Heathrow Thursday, SAS had only two departures yesterday afternoon. In all, four outbound and four inbound flights from Heathrow were cancelled.
Some stranded passengers were sent by train to Brussels. The airline said it was using a larger plane than normal on its regular flights there to make room for the extra passengers returning to Denmark.
While SAS expected the rest of its European traffic to proceed according to schedule today, it warned passengers on trans-Atlantic flights to pack an extra helping of patience.
'We expect delays on flights to the US as a result of tightened security there,' said Mikkel Løndal of SAS.
Airport officials recommend that trans-Atlantic passengers contact their airline to hear whether changes have been made to boarding requirements.
