Amsterdam Schiphol airport is suffering from long delays at present, including disruption which has led to thousands of bags being delayed.
The increased security is a result of a decision taken after a joint meeting of the Mayor, Public Prosecution Office, Chief Royal Military Police and the Police of the municipality of Haarlemmermeer (in consultation with the NCTV)
and was said to be “based on a ‘signal’ relating to Schiphol Airport”.
“The additional measures are visible and noticeable. Security has been intensified. In addition to these measures, various invisible measures have been put in place as well.”
