Schiphol flights delayed by IT problem at air traffic control

A computer malfunction in air traffic control at Schiphol on Wednesday morning means that numerous flights are delayed and other are being diverted to other airports. It is unclear how long this problem will last, ANP reports.

"We do not know what caused the problem or how long it will take for the problem to be resolved", a spokesperson said tot he news wire. A backup procedure was implemented which caused delays in arrival. Planes are departing according to schedule, however. 

Schiphol is working hard to resolve the issue. Travelers and people picking up people at the airport are advised to check their airlines' websites for actual travel information.
