KLM no longer flies to Schiphol from European destinations. The airline’s alleged Hoppers fly to Schiphol empty. This happens due to congestion at the airport.
KLM announced in a press release that it is no longer carrying passengers to Schiphol. This airport again suffers from big crowds on the weekend in Whitsun.
KLM also talks about “unforeseen and acute circumstances beyond our control”. “Due to unfavorable weather conditions and runway maintenance in Schiphol, many aircraft were unable to land or depart in Amsterdam. This means that a significant number of KLM flights were delayed or canceled on Saturday. The number of passengers who were unable to depart from and as a result of these effects Externally, Amsterdam has grown exponentially as a result.”
Schiphol says this measure is independent of the crowds of passengers departing from the airport. Due to unfavorable wind direction and limited runway capacity, delays occurred and flights were canceled. This has a domino effect and causes unrest, according to a spokesperson.
KLM previously reported that this weekend will be until fifty flights Cancels daily. In doing so, the airline wants to contribute to a “controllable situation at the airport and in its own operations”.
The additional measure is intended to ensure that stranded passengers are still able to leave Schiphol as much as possible on Saturday. Also, KLM can operate as many flights as possible on Sundays. KLM states that it is “doing everything in its power to provide passengers with an alternative flight as quickly as possible”.
