Flights scheduled to arrive into Amsterdam have been diverted to alternative European gateways and a few of those scheduled to depart to places such as Germany, Belgium, Britain and the US have been suspended or postponed until the technical problem is resolved.

“We are not sure yet what the cause is or how long it will take to fix it.”

Schiphol is one of Europe’s largest airports and according to 2015 figures, handles some 58 million passengers per year.
