During the meeting on May 22, the Federal Council approved the temporary closure of the airspace over the area where the Bürgenstock resort is located in the canton of Nidwalden. Restrictions will be in effect from June 13 to June 17. During this period, air security in the area will be provided exclusively by the Swiss Air Force.

In addition, the authorities have approved the deployment of up to 4,000 military personnel to support the cantonal authorities. The Army will also provide equipment and vehicles.

"The number of military personnel deployed is determined by the complexity of the terrain and the scale of the mission, including the number of objects to be protected",&nbsp ;– clarified in the government.

Switzerland also intends to strengthen control over radioactive emissions in this region and ensure cyber security of facilities located in Bürgenstock.
