AMS Closes Departures Hall Due To Safety Concerns

Mon Sep 21, 2015 8:07 pm

Dutch newssites are reporting AMS has closed departures hall 3 due to safety concerns. There are no known details.. only rumours that it concerns an inbound flight (which makes sense as there is not much departing anymore at this hour).

Any constructive updates are welcome...

Update:
National television (NOS) and commercial television (RTL) report that the incident took place at the M-pier (used mainly by low-cost airlines). Airport sources describe the incident as a security breach. Airport police have sealed off the area to re-check everyone in the area.

Passenger had a mobile phone cover that looked like a gun. Security only noticed after she had left the checkpoint and were concerned it was a real gun.
