Statement on busy holiday weekend and related cancellations on 29-30th of April and 1st of May

KLM has cancelled up to 47 flights (roundtrips and one way) for coming Saturday and Sunday. Earlier, KLM already announced the cancellation of a total of 28 round trip flights for Friday. These cancellations need to contribute to our effort to offer most of our customers a pleasant start and return of their journey.

Cancelling flights needs to contribute to the request of Schiphol to keep processes manageable at the airport because of their staff shortage. Cancelling flights and adjusting KLM’s flight schedules also helps controlling our own workload.

KLM’s flight schedule will be optimized throughout the weekend. At this point in time, we do not expect additional cancellations are needed. However, further cancellations can not be ruled out. 

We urge passengers to get to the airport on time. KLM’s recommends to be at the airport at least 3 hours prior to time of departure of your flight.
