"Ciaran": dozens of flights cancelled in Amsterdam
Air carrier KLM stopped connections due to storm
The Dutch national carrier KLM has today cancelled dozens of flights to and from Amsterdam-Schiphol airport. This is a preventive measure decided due to the passage of cyclone "Ciaran", which is lashing the Netherlands with wind gusts of up to 110 kilometers per hour. The storm, which originated near the British Isles, is hitting Northern European states and will be in Italy in the next few hours.
"We have decided to cancel all KLM flights to and from Schiphol airport, scheduled from early afternoon until the end of today", the Dutch company said in a statement. The airline thus responded to the orange alert launched by the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute. This morning dozens of flights were also cancelled in the south-west of the United Kingdom, hit by cyclone "Ciaran".
