Re: Diversions from around the globe (medical, technical, ...) 2022

The reason is a lack of capacity at Schiphol. Luckily the AMS airport website clearly talks about lack of staff. Lack of capacity means... nothing. Runway 09-27 is closed for urgent maintenance till 26th April. Runway 18L-36R is closed for heavy maintenance till Mid July. https://www.aviation24.be/...
