Problems abound at these airports, and Schiphol is one of them to travel

Airports around the world are now grappling with problems, with passengers wanting to go on vacations in droves again, but not having enough staff to manage it properly. CNN Lists the most delayed and canceled airports. Spoiler: Our national pride is not good at Schiphol.

American media had the FlightAware site, which tracks the flight status of all airlines around the world, listing where travelers are most likely to face delays and cancellations. Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada takes the cake: more than half of flights were delayed between May 26 and July 19. Schiphol fared slightly better, with 41.5 percent of flights departing there late. This is good for fourth place among the top 10 airports with the highest number of delayed flights worldwide.

Long queues

Meanwhile, it was a busy day in Schiphol due to the start of the summer holidays in the south of the Netherlands. An airport spokesperson said 62,000 passengers depart on the day, meaning people can stand in long queues. The spokesperson said there was no other problem.

Passengers queue outside in front of the Schiphol departure hall. “It’s no different than other peak days. We’ve seen it before,” the spokeswoman said. Due to congestion in the departure hall, the airport is asking people whose flights don’t leave within four hours to wait in Schiphol Plaza to disperse the crowd.

In June, Schiphol set a peak of 63,500 local passengers per day. These are the ones who begin their journey at Shibol. This does not include transfer passengers. By early August, it will increase to 73,000 passengers.
