More information about the industrial actions on Wednesday, 18 September
The FNV trade union has announced industrial actions for some ground personnel in the course of Wednesday, 18 September 2019 from 13:00 hours to 17:00 hours (CET). KLM will do its utmost to limit the number of cancellations and continue transporting as many passengers as possible. KLM has nonetheless been compelled to cancel 12 European round-trip flights as a preventive measure. KLM also expects delays.
In order to continue operating as many flights as possible despite the industrial actions, it will not be possible to carry hold baggage on European flights arriving or departing from Schiphol on Wednesday, 18 September 2019 between 12:45 hours and 17:00 hours (CET). We are also urging our passengers to limit the volume of their hand luggage as far as possible in case they are prevented from carrying it with them on the European flights due to space constraints.
In so doing, KLM hopes to limit the impact of the strike on its customers. A no-charge rebooking policy has been established for passengers who do not wish to travel without hold baggage.
The passengers affected will be approached directly by KLM and will be rebooked on alternative flights. We therefore advise our passengers to keep a close eye on the information published on the KLM Website and/or the KLM App.
