Runway 04/22 closed
Runway 04/22 will be out of service from the 5th of October (2000Z) until the 24th of October (1500Z). The Dutch VACC will simulate this closure on VATSIM during the above period. Runway 04/22 is used most of the time as a tertiary runway, mainly for VFR, police flights, bizzjets, etc. Controllers on duty are requested to select the most appropriate alternative runway for those flights, with the possibility to use the main active runway.
 
Additional to the closure of runway 04/22, several taxiways and platform(entries) will be closed for varying periods of time. More info here. These closures will not be simulated by default. However, individual controllers are free to simulate them if they so desire.
