Netherlands’ Flag Carrier Cancels Flights Due to Staff Shortages
KLM airline has been cancelling flights at Schiphol airport due to staff shortages. The flag carrier of Netherlands reports that staff shortages continue to affect its operations thereby forcing it to cut, if not reduce, flights. A dozen flights have been cancelled last weekend after a whopping 42 flight cancellations a day before it.
“It’s a busy May holiday period. Due to the increasing numbers of passengers and the shortage of staff, passengers at Schiphol are faced with longer than usual waiting times. In recent days, this has led to very busy situations at the airport. Schiphol has therefore asked airlines to reduce the number of local departing passengers this weekend by canceling bookings and not accepting new bookings from Schiphol in the period 2 to 8 May. This is an annoying but necessary measure to reduce the number of passengers, to manage the crowds together with our partners. Schiphol advises passengers to contact their airline for questions about their flight,” said Schiphol airport.
