As a result of the heavy storm expected on Thursday, 18 January, runway capacity at Schiphol will be severely restricted. The heavy winds will also make it impossible to continue ground handling operations between 10:00 and 12:00 hours. KLM will therefore be cancelling 110 return flights in Europe on 18 January.
The passengers concerned are being informed and rebooked. Additionally, travellers may be affected by delays throughout the course of the day.
Meteorological Institute KNMI issued a code orange weather warning for the whole country, starting at 10:00 a.m. and continuing through to 2:00 p.m. A code yellow warning is in effect for the rest of the day.
