Amsterdam flight delays information

According to statistics, about 80%, i.e. one in five passengers, suffer from Amsterdam flight delays today. The airlines are affected too, because significant delays result in passengers legitimately claiming compensation.

Some flights at Schiphol get delays because of bad weather conditions or technical reasons. These storms make it difficult for the aircraft to take off and make it unsafe for passengers. In addition, when there is the risk of lightning strikes, airport staff cannot work outside. The airport management worries about the safety of travellers and staff, so flights are usually rescheduled.

Amsterdam flight COVID rules

If you desire to travel within the European Union, you must present a certificate of vaccination, a certificate that you have been infected, or a PCR test negative for COVID-19. People residing in the Netherlands can use the CoronaCheck program and present all of their relevant results through it. Note, that a certificate is no longer necessary for attending local events.

Given the present circumstances in the Netherlands, when you take a flight to Amsterdam, you`ll notice that COVID restrictions were corrected (and they don't even apply the EU entry ban anymore). This means that starting from 17 September 2022, there are currently no restrictions for EU or non-EU/ Schengen travellers (with the exception of China).

Travellers from China who are over 11 years old and who are travelling to the Netherlands are welcome but the personnel advises them to take pre-flight COVID testing in Amsterdam (but it is not relevant for those transiting or relocating to China).

Regardless, doctors still recommend taking precautions and carrying a COVID-19 certificate in order to avoid any potential issues in the future.
