KLM will cancel another 12 flights on Sunday due to staff shortages

Like other airlines, such as easyJet and subsidiary Transavia, KLM suffers a lot from staff shortages, but also from absenteeism due to illness. That is why the airline has recently canceled more flights to relieve the workload for staff. This means that not only are fewer aircraft departing from Schiphol, but fewer aircraft are also arriving.

Schiphol Airport once again announced that it will also be busy at the airport on Sunday. “It is just a busy day as we have seen in recent weeks. We are deploying as many colleagues as possible so that all passengers catch their flight on time,” said a spokesman.

The pressure gauge of the airport’s website reads that Sunday is a peak day, with passengers having to queue “much longer” at check-in counters, security and passport control. For Monday, the pressure meter indicates a busy day, again with long lines.

Schiphol had previously said that it would become busier from the May holiday towards the summer, especially at weekends. This can lead to long queues at peak times. Weekends are usually busier than weekdays.

During the May holiday, a lack of staff in support services such as security caused chaos at the airport. A wildcat strike among cargo and baggage handlers further disrupted the flight schedule.
