Busy at Schiphol
As of yesterday, passengers are not allowed to enter Schiphol more than 4 hours before flight departure. There are inspectors at the entrances. According to a spokesperson, the vast majority of travelers adhere to it, but social media still complains about crowds and long lines.
KLM announced today that it will no longer carry passengers from European destinations to Schiphol. According to KLM, there are currently too many passengers who cannot depart from Schiphol and this must first be resolved. In any case, the measure applies for today.
