KLM will stop operating passenger flights at Schiphol Airport during overnight hours from the end of March. This is a measure that the airline had previously promised to Infrastructure Minister Mark Harbers to reduce noise pollution that residents near the airport experience.
The Dutch airline will not schedule flights to depart or land at Schiphol between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. once the summer season timetable is underway the airline confirmed after it was first reported by Luchtvaartnieuws. For the most part, this means that four intercontinental flights will not land at the airport between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m., but will land a bit later.
The updated timetable on KLM's website shows the flights it operates from Lagos, Accra, Atlanta and Paramaribo will have an adjusted schedule, but not necessarily flights operated by its partner airlines. Changes will begin from March 30, and will include timetable adjustments ranging from a few minutes to a few hours.
