Staff shortage in Amsterdam: KLM cuts ticket sales

Due to major handling problems at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, the airline KLM has drastically reduced ticket sales. The airline announced that flights from Amsterdam can only be booked very intermittently until Sunday. A KLM spokesperson told NOS television that only expensive tickets were available.

For weeks, the airport has been experiencing major problems due to a lack of staff in baggage handling and security. This creates long queues that extend into the street. Passengers often have to wait hours to check in. From time to time there were already clashes with angry travelers.

KLM wants to provide space for rebooks with restricted ticket sales. Passengers who miss their flight due to long waiting times can take a later flight. The airline also offers customers who want to travel another day due to the chaos of rebooking.

Schiphol has now presented a plan of action to prevent further summer chaos. The airport wants to hire more staff and pay higher wages. Flights will also be transferred to regional airports.
