22nd December 2010, Comments 0 comments


While the Netherlands’ main airport Amsterdam Schiphol is still experiencing problems due to Europe’s severe winter weather, Eindhoven Airport in the south of the country has announced a record number of passengers for the year.

Schiphol says between 20 and 25 flights are likely to be cancelled on Wednesday. These flights - to London, Frankfurt and Belgium - have been dropped due to problems at the destinations. Schiphol itself is now operating at full capacity.

Schiphol says about 3,000 pieces of baggage remain unclaimed at the airport following the disruption of the last few days. Normally, lost luggage recovery can take some time but airline KLM says people will be able to get their property back over the next few days provided they show their passports and baggage identification slips.

Eindhoven record Meanwhile, Eindhoven Airport is celebrating a record number of passengers. So far this year 2.14 million passengers have used the airport, a 25-percent increase on 2009. It is also the first time the number of passengers has topped the two-million mark.
