Amsterdam Airport set for flight cancelations due to Ciarán

Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport will see disruptions throughout the day as storm Ciarán rages through much of northwestern Europe.

The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute has issued an orange alert — the second highest warning level on a four-grade scale — for parts of the Netherlands, including the North Holland province where Schiphol is located. 

“Due to severe weather conditions there will be some cancelations throughout the day,” Floris Liebrand, a spokesperson for the airport, told Bloomberg by phone late Wednesday. Schiphol wasn’t able yet to determine the number of cancelations.

Hometown carrier KLM NV said it will cancel all its flights through the Amsterdam hub from early afternoon until the end of the day. KLM’s analyses show that expected wind gusts of 95 to 110 kilometers per hour could lead to unsafe situations at the airport, the airline said on its website

Transport networks in the UK, France and the Netherlands warned of travel delays, and some canceled service in anticipation of the storm, which is set to drench the region and bring powerful winds. Energy providers also readied adverse-weather plans.
