Dutch union FNV has announced a work stoppage of part of KLM’s ground staff on Wednesday Sept. 18, from 12:45 pm to 5:00 pm.
Due to the job action, KLM passengers will not be able to bring check-in baggage on European flights that depart from or arrive at Amsterdam Schiphol during the strike period. KLM asks that passengers keep carry-on items to a minimum to avoid having too much hand baggage in the cabin.
KLM also warns that there could be lingering disruptions after 5:00 pm and thus passengers should still plan on bringing hand baggage instead of check-in baggage for the remainder of the day.
KLM is offering flexible rebooking to impacted passengers traveling during the strike period.
Travelers should monitor airline flight status with regards to your specific itinerary as the ground staff strike could cause delays.
Please contact your Adelman travel consultant for additional information.
