KLM authorities pressed for air traffic to resume on Sunday after conducting a test flight above Dutch airspace a day earlier. Dutch officials said initial inspections showed the flight had ended "safely" with "no irregularities" from the ash.

The airline said it now plans to return seven airplanes without passengers to Amsterdam from Duesseldorf on Sunday.
"We observed no irregularities either during the flight or during the initial inspection on the ground," Peter Hartman, the airline's chief executive who was aboard Saturday's flight, said.
"We hope to receive permission as soon as possible after that to start up our operation and to transport our passengers to their destinations."
Also on Saturday, Germany's Lufthansa airlines flew 10 empty long-haul planes to Frankfurt from Munich at low altitude levels between 3,000 and 8,000 metres, Wolfgang Weber, a spokesman, said.
"We simply checked every single aircraft very carefully after the landing in Frankfurt to see whether there was any damage that could have been caused by volcanic ash," he said.
"Not the slightest scratch was found on any of the 10 planes."
