KLM Cancels Flights to Stabilize Operations at Amsterdam Airport



In light of the persistent operational challenges at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol due to the shortage of security staff, KLM will take various measures (some supplementing existing measures) to ensure that customers who book a flight with KLM get their summer holidays off to a good start.


The following measures will take effect from 8 July through 28 August, 2022.


  • Through 28 August, KLM will cancel 10 to 20 return flights to European destinations every day.

  • KLM will also strongly restrict the sale of remaining seats on KLM and KLM Cityhopper flights to European destinations. This will free up space for customers who are rebooked if their flight is cancelled. This measure will supplement the existing restriction on sales, in order to accommodate passengers who have to be rebooked after missing their flight due to long queues at Schiphol and to comply with restrictions Schiphol has imposed on the number of passengers boarding locally.

  • Customers who can’t fly will be informed in a timely manner and rebooked onto a different flight. In most cases, this flight will depart on the same day or as close as possible to the original booking. Passengers will not have to contact KLM for this purpose, but will be informed by KLM or their travel agent.

  • Cargo will no longer be booked and loaded onto KLM Cityhopper flights. This will reduce work pressure for handling staff on the ground.

  • KLM will also close the belly compartment for loose packages and mail bags aboard flights bound for intercontinental destinations. This loose bulk freight will be placed in containers, which will be brought in via the apron, making them easier to load onto the aircraft.


Measures relating to airfreight will remain in place until the end of the summer schedule (29 October).


KLM is confident that these measures will ensure smooth handling of incoming and outgoing flights in the coming weeks. KLM reasserts that these measures are temporary.


Work pressure at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is currently relentless as Schiphol and KLM are both faced with staff shortages. KLM’s measures are intended to restore operational stability, thereby relieving pressure on staff at Schiphol and KLM.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
