Computer failure causes delays at Amsterdam Schiphol airport

Since 3.30pm today, a software failure at the traffic system of Schiphol Amsterdam airport causes many planes to be delayed.

The problems mean that about half of the normal number of flights can land or depart.

It is unknown when the problem will be solved.

On the Schiphol website you can find the status of in and outgoing flights and more information.

Update: the problem has been resolved later on Saturday evening.
