Martinair/AMS 3/5/2005

Sun Mar 06, 2005 6:52 am

Martinair is apparently running 30+ hours behind on their MCO-AMS route and saying its because the airport is closed. Any news or wether AMS really is closed or not...and if so..why?

Massive amounts of snow. Up to 2 foot in certain places in NL but 1 foot at AMS. This is highly unusual in the Netherlands to ever happen, let along in March. Add to that fog for yet some more delays.

Schiphol has reopened but with limited services only. Transfer pax are given a preferential treatment with 1000s still stranded at the airport.
