Again very busy in the departure halls of Schiphol. There are long queues, but the waiting time for passengers seems to be limited. The airport itself says it will go ahead.

Journalist Beau Heimensen says passengers agree. “Not chaos, but intense. There is also a walking path that leads outside, so crowds inside are limited. It doesn’t happen often and some travelers are surprised.”

Due to the May holidays and the major staff shortage at the airport, Schiphol had asked airlines to cancel flights.

3500 fewer passengers

KLM responded and canceled at least 47 flights for today and tomorrow. Passengers are rebooked to another KLM flight or another airline. A number of flights from Corendon and TUI travel agencies moved to Rotterdam The Hague airport. According to Schiphol, this saves around 3,500 passengers today.

According to the airport, Schiphol and its airlines are currently advising to cancel or move other flights tomorrow. The airport cannot say when exactly that will become clear.

KLM reports that there are currently no cancellations. “But every day we watch and keep our pulse.” The airline advises its customers to be at the airport 3 hours in advance.

Many passengers said: “It’s not that bad. Fortunately, it’s still going on,” he says.
