Dutch KLM cancels flights in, out of Schiphol

AMSTERDAM, April 17 (BestGrowthStock) – Dutch airline KLM, part of
Franco-Dutch Air France-KLM (AIRF.PA: ), has cancelled all its
flights in and out of Schiphol Amsterdam Airport for Saturday,
it said in a statement on Saturday.

The Dutch low-cost airline Transavia, also part of the Air
France-KLM group, has cancelled all its flights to and from the
Netherlands and to and from Denmark until 1800 GMT on Saturday,
Transavia said in a statement.

The Transport and Water Management ministry said in a
statement earlier that Dutch airspace would remain closed until
at least 1200 GMT on Saturday because of Icelandic volcanic ash.

The closure of Dutch airspace is costing Schiphol Amsterdam
Airport “a few million euros” per day, an airport spokeswoman
told ANP-Reuters.
