Power outage sparks delays at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport

The airport says incoming flights ‘will be reduced in capacity’ and that several departing flights have been cancelled or delayed.

Passengers at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport are facing long waits after a power outage temporarily knocked out its check-in systems.

The outage that hit parts of Amsterdam early on Sunday morning prompted authorities to briefly shut roads and a rail link to the airport on the outskirts of the Dutch capital.

The airport says on its website that check-in systems were restored early on Sunday, but warned passengers to check the status of their flights for updates.

The airport says incoming flights “will be reduced in capacity” from 9-11am local time and that several departing flights have been cancelled or delayed.

The Dutch power grid administrator, Tennet, says it is investigating the cause of the outage.
