Six outward and six return flights this weekend via Rotterdam instead of Schiphol

Due to the crowds at Schiphol, airlines operated six flights to Rotterdam The Hague Airport this weekend. Schiphol expects 57,000 passengers tomorrow and 63,000 on Sunday. Corendon will operate two flights on Saturday and one on Sunday. Transavia is a Sunday and TUI is a Saturday and Sunday. The same number of flights will land in Rotterdam instead of Schiphol. With this measure, the airport expects the vast majority of passengers to board the plane this weekend.

The airport always expects large crowds. Arrive a little earlier than the usual two hours for a European flight and three hours for an intercontinental flight,” said a spokesperson. “We do everything we can to keep the waiting time as short as possible.” Schiphol will appoint additional staff for this in the coming days, including office staff. A roof was also made for the passengers waiting outside the terminal.

Schiphol asked airlines last weekend to cancel reservations to avoid chaos. KLM canceled 47 flights, other airlines refused to cancel flights or reservations. Several planes escaped to Rotterdam. There were long queues that caused significant delays. Due to the crowds, some passengers missed their flight.
