KLM will cancel a limited number of flights this summer. Travelers whose flight does not take place will be offered an “acceptable alternative”. KLM announced it. All airlines must intervene during the summer months because Schiphol has set a maximum number of travelers per day.
KLM says people whose flights need to be canceled can still fly on the same day or as close to that date as possible. “Travelers affected by this will be personally informed as soon as possible.”
The company will also sell fewer tickets for the summer period. This should also help meet airport requirements.
During the May holidays, Schiphol faced major staff shortages in security and elsewhere at the airport. These problems will continue through the summer. To avoid dangerous situations, the number of travelers is therefore greatly reduced.
KLM affirms once again that limiting the number of travelers cannot be a structural solution to the problems.
