Delays and cancellations due to storm Pia

Due to the strong winds caused by Storm Pia, around 200 flights tomorrow will be cancelled as a precaution. Travellers should take delays and cancellations throughout the day into account. This applies to both departing and arriving flights. Schiphol advises travellers to check the latest travel information before they head to the airport. They can do this on Schiphol.nl, in our app or by contacting the airline. 

Because we are expecting wind speeds (from the west) of around 50 kilometres per hour, with gusts of up to 90 kilometres per hour, only the Buitenveldertbaan Runway can be used for take-offs and landings from the afternoon onwards. 

The strong winds that have been forecast will also impact the handling of planes on the ground. For safety reasons, this cannot always be carried out as normal when there are such strong winds. This can result in potential disruptions to the flight schedule for both departing and arriving flights. 

We remain in close contact with the weather services for the most up-to-date weather forecast and the impact it has on air traffic.
