Suspicious-looking white powder found at the Vienna Schwechat airport tested negative for anthrax and appeared to be harmless starch.
The airport's first terminal closed after the powder was found on October 14, but re-opened on the same day, after the area had been sprayed with a disinfectant.
Schwechat airport is about 50 kilometres west of Bratislava. Since there are no direct flights from the Slovak capital to the major world hubs, about 300,000 Slovaks use Schwechat airport every year.
