A disruption in Air Traffic Control's communication system that halted all flights at Schiphol for a short time on Wednesday, has been resolved. Air traffic at the Amsterdam airport is now getting back on track.

"The communication system of Air Traffic control is stable again. Air traffic is being restarted. It will take some time before the situation at our airport is running as normal again, so please check your airline or Schiphol.nl for current flight information", Schiphol said on Twitter.

On its website Schiphol reports delays for the majority of its departing flights, ranging from a few minutes to an hour or more. Some arrivals are also delayed.
