Malmo Airport in southern Sweden opened Thursday morning along with three airports, but most other airports in the country remained closed due to the volcanic ash cloud from Icelands eruption.

Gothenburg, Helsingborg, Angelholm, Jonkoping, Ostersund, Sundsvall and Umea all remained closed even though most of the airports outside Sweden had reached normal air traffic level, a report from the Swedish Daily SVD said.

Bjorn Stenberg with the Civil Aviation Authority, LFV was quoted by the SVD as saying that the situation unexpectedly took a quick turn for the worse Wednesday night.

The winds have pushed the volcanic ash cloud to southern and western Sweden.

Swedavia, the firm which operates 14 Swedish airports, estimated that around half of scheduled flights could run. Arlanda Airport near the capital city Stockholm has been reopen again since Wednesday.
