Transavia Airlines (HV, Amsterdam Schiphol) has adjusted its schedule of departures from Amsterdam Schiphol in July and August in line with passenger caps imposed by the airport amid an ongoing security staff shortage that is causing bottlenecks and delays at one of Europe’s major connecting hubs.

The low-cost Air France-KLM subsidiary, in a statement, said while a large number of flights would go ahead as scheduled, the carrier would have to “cancel a number of bookings”, but alternatives would be offered to most passengers.

The airline has also adjusted parts of its August schedule. “We expect to receive more information from Schiphol at the beginning of July about further measures needed for the month of August. We may need to change or cancel a number of flights in August as well,” it stated.

This follows an earlier announcement by Schiphol Airport that it will reduce its departing passenger throughput between July 7 and August 28, 2022, due to security staff shortages.

All Transavia passengers whose flights were affected during that period would receive an email, and most could be booked on another flight or request a ticket refund.

Transavia is also limiting the sale of tickets with departures from Schiphol in July and August to decrease the number of departing passengers from the airport.

Passengers whose flights aren’t cancelled but who would like to avoid Schiphol could change their flights for free to depart from Rotterdam or Eindhoven Airport for the same day and destination before September 1, 2022, the airline said.
