Busy at Schiphol today: take delays and cancellations into account

Last update: 12 September 2022, 22:21, Amsterdam

It is very busy at Schiphol today. Staffing levels at security today are lower than what Schiphol had requested of the security companies. As a result, there is a shortage of security personnel and the number of waiting travellers is increasing, especially in Departures 3. Schiphol has asked several airlines to cancel some flights today between 16:00 and 23:00.


Are you traveling via Schiphol today? Check the current flight information with your airline. Then take into account longer waiting times, delays and possible cancellations.

Employees in the terminal are doing everything they can to ensure that everyone can travel today, but unfortunately there is a chance that travellers will miss their flight due to long waiting times. We regret the situation that has arisen and understands the disappointment and frustration that it may entail. Travellers who miss their flight as a result of long queues at the security check can apply to Schiphol for compensation.
