Services at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport were back to normal on Monday morning following Sunday’s power cut and the ensuing chaos.
Some 6,000 passengers whose flights were cancelled on Sunday are now being put on extra flights and there are no delays, a spokesman told news agency ANP.
Some 60 flights were cancelled and dozens delayed on Sunday after a power cut in the early hours of the morning. The cause of the outage, which led to the check-in system closing down, is not yet clear but may be linked to a major power cut in parts of the Zuidoost residential district.
However, travellers are being warned to allow extra time to get to the airport because of the regional transport strike.
